Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Just happened to see your post and thought I would respond. Better to arrive late to a party than to miss it entirely! Just think, you have many albums worth of great music to discover, and you do not need to endure the long waits between albums that those who followed LC all along had to endure. Gi...

Re: Remember those Concert Presale Agonies?

Even though I had not attended any concert since Jethro Tull in the 1990's and never ordered tickets online, I found the Forum's pre-sales simple to use (although not without a little anguish each time). Since these concerts were a luxury for us, we always opted for the $250 tickets, and with one ex...

Re: Tributes to Leonard around the world

Re Montreal tribute,

Give a listen to Li'l Andy's rendition of "Democracy" in the link, it will be worth your time. He sings two verses that I never heard before, does anyone know anything about these additional verses?

Re: Robyn Hitchcock - The Butcher

It;s been ages since I heard this song. I forgot how wickedly haunting it is and how trying to analyze it makes your brain hurt.

Thanks for posting, I am off to listen to the whole album.

Thanksgiving

On the occasion of Thanksgiving in the US, Joann and I would like to give thanks for these memories: PBS Television 2009--a serendipitous viewing of "Live in London" revealing that our favorite artist of yesteryear was alive, well, and still performing. This discovery wound up affecting our lives pr...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Since finding this forum several years ago, I was always pleasantly surprised that our group always remained focused on Leonard and his body of work and avoided off-topic and divisive subjects. I venture to say that this is unique among widely-followed internet forums, and it is something that allow...

Re: Bench updates

The whole point of a stone bench was its permanence. A wooden bench deteriorates rather quickly, even the more durable ones we've had in our garden never last ten years. Maybe this is why the Parthenon was not constructed of wood. I am quite perplexed why forces keep arising to thwart our project to...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Eighty-two years, all lived with such class.

Thanks for the words, thanks for tunes, they are forever.

Condolences to Leonard's family, and to all those who treasure his work and are grieving.

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Just received C/D from Amazon today. After two listens, here is my "FOXWOOD" type review: Like the way everything fits together to maximize the overall impact on the listener. Favorite track is "Steer Your Way," great lyrics put to a captivating tune. We got truth in advertising, in comparison "Song...

Re: Leonard Cohen's health

My wife just turned 82 and, like LC, has back issues (which she is dealing with). I know she would not be enthralled to read online discussions about her conditions and ultimate demise, and (if he reads these pages), LC might not as well. I know such speculations come with the territory for celebrit...

Re: Leonard 80 years: Fund Raising for our Hydra Bench

Agree 100% with Tripping that surplus bench funds go to HydraArk to help defray some of their expenses in helping the animals of Hydra. Animal organizations hardly ever receive government grants and assistance, so excess bench funds going to HydraArk would help fill a void. From what I've read about...

Oh, I thought "album" meant vinyl rather than CD. Anyone know how I can "upgrade" my pledge? Thanks.

Re: Now: Interview with Hattie Webb

John, this was a very nice thing to do, for Hattie and for all of us on this forum. Just did "the least you can do" by ordering Hattie's CD and am looking forward to hearing it. (Would love to have ordered the package with handwritten lyric sheet, but that came with an album rather than CD.)
