Re: From the Dept. of He's Still Got It...

Was Oscar Wilde foretelling Leonard Cohen when he wrote:

"Those whom the Gods love grow young"

A great line that strikes me as perfectly applicable.

:D

Re: Is it becoming slightly stale?

When something is great... it just is. Very well said Dari :) I love too how you allude to the theatrical aspect of the shows. I mentioned this earlier on in this thread. Just because we listen to a great song a myriad of times, doesn't in any way lessen its beauty and resonance. (This of course ca...

Re: Is it becoming slightly stale?

Perhaps the new album should be called "New Ideas".... ;-) Just my personal opinion, but if I saw Len & The Band perform the same set-list, the same encores etc 30,40, 50 times in a row, I don't think that I could get bored. Mainly because the music is so impressive and the lyrics always yield somet...

Hello Susannah, Welcome to the forum! Yes, lots of Brits here but the best thing about this forum is that it's truly global - a great space to communicate, celebrate and debate. I was made aware of this forum several years ago but only joined last year. It is very pleasant to drop in from time to ti...

Re: Is it becoming slightly stale?

Hi, I did read carefully what you said and your previous posts! I detected maybe a sense of disullusionment but I didn't want to sound presumptuous in my assumptions :) Sorry to hear that Len isn't coming to Ireland. However, always a believer that where there's a will there's a way. Namaste :) (I l...

Re: Is it becoming slightly stale?

Reading about concerts elsewhere - the same patter, the same set lists, is not great Why isn't it great? If I go and see Hamlet ten nights in a row and hear the words "To be or not to be", do I feel cheated or underwhelmed? Of course not, for every performance will contain a different shade of mean...

Re: Leonard Cohen For The Ages

Thinking how best to summarise the impact of Leonard Cohen, this line by Ben Jonson on William Shakespeare leapt up: "He was not of an age, but for all time." I do believe there is a timeless quality to LC's music which is why listening over and over is such a richly rewarding experience. Incidental...

Re: Is it becoming slightly stale?

This is a most interesting question and perhaps one we ask about all great artists, especially those we admire and cherish. As most have have hinted on this thread, LC brings a freshness and vitality to each show, that is unparalleled in its majesty, grace and renewal of spirit that they yield. I wo...

Likewise, love this! Thanks for sharing.

With grace and fortune, I, too, see no reason why this shouldn't happen.

Re: Book Review: Sylvie Simmons – I’m Your Man

Sylvie Simmons reported truthfully & clearly what people told her, readers are free to do with it as they wish, & I think this is the most excellent & respectful approach to writing a biography, esp. one about such a very complex man. Very well said holydove :) I wonder whether it might just be a c...

Re: Reasons why being broken is not so bad.

Beautiful :) This makes me think of Leonard's book of psalms, "Book of Mercy". I was reading some Rumi the other day and his lines about dancing strike a chord. Basically, dance when you're happy. Dance when you're broken open. There is nothing quite like a dance. Or as Leonard said when being inter...

Re: Announcement on Wednesday January 9

Had my fingers crossed for a concert in Cardiff, Wales.

Leonard, we love you in the UK. Not just in London. Great
though that city is.

Still hoping ;)
