Re: Old Ideas - Various Chart Positions

Maybe we need to start lobbying for an appearance on Saturday Night Live!

Re: Old Ideas - Various Chart Positions

Those iTune Top 10 Album reports are absolutely remarkable - LC has never had an album perform close to this before. I do remember when Songs of Love and Hate reached #4 in the UK.

Re: Let's Help Make Old Ideas #1 Worldwide!!

The reviews are now coming in so fast and furious that it's really not possible to keep track - if you Google LC there are dozens of them, and thus far I have not read a single negative one. What interested me was the fact that Sony's head honcho, Stringer, was at the L.A. conference at the Canadian...

Movie - Take This Waltz

There is a new movie scheduled for release within the next month or so called Take This Waltz, starring Michelle Williams, Seth Rogan and Sarah Silverman. Does anyone know of LC's song is featured?

Re: Las Vegas Meetups for Dec 10/11

Leonard dominates the Arts section of today's Los Angeles Times, with a huge full page ad for the Las Vegas concerts on page 3 and a smaller corner ad on top of page 1! Who'd have ever thought!

Re: Essay about Leonard Cohen- "Music in the Ice"-Stephen Watson

What an article! Some months back someone posted an article by Gary Kamiya from Salon.com called "Leonard Cohen's perfect offering". I thought nothing could beat that one - but Watson's does.

CONCERT REPORT: Las Vegas, NV, November 12

Walking on the Strip a while ago and overheard three people deciding what show to see this evening. They mentioned LC, but one of them commented "a bit too mellow". "Pardon my interruption" says I, "but I could not help overhearing your conversation". Then I remarked that mellow is the last word one...

LC Songs Now in General Use

Interesting how some of LC's work is now so much part of public use that it is used as a pun in an article having nothing to do with him:

Re: Dylan is asked about seeing Cohen in concert...

I attended Leonard's concert at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles in 1994 or 1995 - the I'm Your Man Tour. Dylan was there. My companion and I saw him leaving about 20 miniutes after the show ended.

SPRINGSTEEN vs. COHEN

Today's L.A. Times review of Bruce Springsteen's April 15 concert contains a nice comparison with the two recent local Cohen concerts: "Perhaps the biggest surprise about the characteristically invigorating performance is that on returning to L.A., the site of so many high-watermark Springsteen perf...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: San Diego, April 7

What a show! I think San Diego audiences are a bit more subdued than those in other cities, but in the second half of the show the audience really got into it. Leonard spoke very little in the first half - in fact, I think he performed the first 7 or 8 songs without speaking once. Is this the norm f...
