Re: Between Your Love and Mine - Requiem in Ireland

Thanks for this cheerful photo Red Poppy :D
I'm sure Michael D, Sabina and all present appreciated your performance.

Any chance Requiem will tour again?

Re: MONTREAL: More information for the members

Thank you Marie for this Cohen site map. I find it so interesting to see all these familiar places on the map and the pop-ups work fine. I hope others like me who will not be in Montreal in November find your map here - who knows, we might get there some time! Much appreciated.

Re: September 21 - Leonard's birthday

how will they (the dead) manage to read Facebook? " Anytime I am missing Leonard, I have albums, CD s and Dvd s to play and watch to remember him by. Well said, Vicomte and Geoffrey. One of the things I admired about Leonard Cohen was that he was never afraid to face up to reality, however unpleasa...

My personal reaction to any anniversary of loss is quiet remembrance, but I respect that others feel differently.

Yes Mordy, my feelings too. There was a certain dignity about the (comparative) media silence since the death of Leonard Cohen. Suppose it couldn't last!

Re: 'The times they are a-changing...' Montreal concert

Personally I am more interested in sharing what is bound to be an emotional event with friends than who is performing on stage Wendy You don't care who is performing on stage? So you might as well have a meet up with the old pals in the local pub - much less expensive!! (ps - enjoyable as were the ...

'The times they are a-changing...' Montreal concert

Am I the only one saddened by all the goings on about this Montreal concert? Many different packages at different prices, VIP/ rip off options, confusion about seating plan, no certainty about who exactly will perform, etc. It was all so different when LC was alive. Simplicity was paramount in his c...

Re: Important Announcement in August/September

Something special is being planned for the long weekend of November 5 - 7, 2017 (Sun-Tues), in Leonard's beautiful hometown of Montreal. Marie & J "So the great affair is over..." For those of us who won't be able to make it to Montreal in November. Thank you Marie and Jarkko. Perhaps this announce...

Re: Important Announcement in August/September

It's beginning to sound more and more like a tribute concert, or perhaps a series of tribute concerts. Yes indeed, series more likely. I hope not - much as I loved the band it was because they were supporting Leonard so well. Seeing them without LC would just be too sad. "Hamlet" without the Prince...

Re: im interested in anybody's impressions on 'you want it darker'.

Hi Jewlie59, in case you're disappointed to get no replies, please remember this is holiday season when most people eat /drink more and don't bother much with online stuff! Secondly, there is a thread in the news section called "The Darker Album and the Songs" open since Oct. where many/most of us h...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I am so glad that Leonard was protected from media intrusion at the end. We who didn't know him personally have nothing to " whine" about ( his word! ) We have such happy memories of his great concerts and the lovely people of many nationalities we met at them. We have all his albums to listen to, i...

Re: The Darker album: Interviews and reviews in the media

There is a good 4 page Leonard Cohen supplement in today's Irish Times ( Saturday 12th.) After the desolation of yesterday's announcement I have found it a good way to say goodbye.

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Who is he addressing in the lines, "If I didn't have your love to make it real?" It does seem to be a bit out of line with the other songs, since it is decidedly "undark." Any thoughts on this? I agree Vicki. To me too it seems the odd one out. It seems to date from an earlier era when he thought h...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Athnuachan, I couldn't agree more, I see these way too long posts and I just give up the will to read them after a line. I said it sometime ago, Peter Townshend once said the words come out and often he hadn't got a clue what some lines meant. I'm sure he (LC) once said something along the lines of...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

A bit late to suggest this, but there is something to be said for a Twitter like word limit! Those who would like to register a BRIEF response to LC 's latest album could then do so and get some feed back and conversation going on a thread called something like " Brief response " . Those who enjoy l...
