The first day of the Manchester Opera House dates, I went down to the venue at about 3 to see if anyone was around and to see if anyone could get an autograph for me. By some massive stroke of luck his car arrived at the back entrance just as I got there, there were about 10-15 of us there waiting and he signed autographs and posed for very few pictrues, he was in a rush but I shook his hand and he looked at me and said "I have to go now friend, I have already had a few years off. Thank you so much"

He is such a nice and gracious man! I can't believe he felt the need to thank me. I was smiling for days. Then I missed the show I had a ticket for (BAD mix up with the dates) and had to buy another ticket off here! Nightmare but it all worked out well.

Not sure this is the propper topic for this question but It was the closest I could find...
What would be the best way to try and get a personal autograph from the Man?
Him being whoom he is makes it quite impossible to hope for anything less than a miracle to succeed with this task.
What I humbly ask for now is some words of advise from people determined to succeed with what I just begun.

Thank you in advance
If it be your will

Find the artist entrance at a venue he is playing and wait from about half 2 in the afternoon. Chances are he will turn up for soundcheck etc... at about half 3/4.

This is much much harder now the tours are at Arenas and not smaller theatres etc... Most artist entrances are only reachable by getting through a security fence at arenas. Good luck.

For the people heading to the Palace in Waterbury, I have to talk to Frank Tavera about whether that will be allowed. I don't have contacts anywhere but the Greater Waterbury area for that kind of thing, but I figured I'd give the info I do have.

I really just want to see how one of these soundchecks works too LOL, total geek.

Hi!
New here in this forum.

I met Leonard Cohen back in the old 70ths, when he was in Stockholm. I was very young and very shy and he was aldready then a "BIG" artist for me, so when he invited me ( I knew personally the people who arranged the concert) backstage, I didn´t go. Too shy. BUT I did get his autograph. Accidently I have lost the autograph :-( but now there is an autopraph for sale in a bidding place in Sweden, not too expensive either, and I wonder if this autograph is real?? original?

The link to the autograph is:

Regards from Sweden

Personally, I have got a new -personalized! - one as well; cf. viewtopic.php?f=35&t=14693 for a picture!

OK, now's the time to admit what I've been feeling sick about for years. I met LC in 1976 - there was just myself, a friend and him - and we sat on a wall and chatted. Of course, I got his autograph, and kept it (along with Ralph McTell's, another of my heroes) safely for many, many years. But then.....I vaguely recall, during a house move, that all my pre-meeting-husband memorabilia got discarded (it's always a problem when one of you is a hoarder and keeps things like plane tickets, concert programmes, restaurant receipts etc etc and the other thinks that's all just clutter!). It didn't help that my husband is one of those who isn't in the least interested in Leonard Cohen, though he did once, unbidden, buy me his latest release. Such is love.

What can I say? Only that, at least I have the memory (if not the proof) of that meeting. I envy you who have been more careful with such a prized possession.

This may bore you to tears but in 1979 (ish) came to see LC in Manchester and chased him back to his hotel to meet him by chance and breathlessly in the lobby (Portland Thistle I think) he gave me a backstage pass which he signed that got me access then to Preston and Edinburgh shows and a free beer or two with him and the band aftershow in Preston. Subsequently I saw him at the Albert Hall in London a few years later and waited at the stage door afterwards with a few other fans and had him sign a couple of albums. As happens with things in a turbulent and often messed up life the items got lost along the way but the memories still are fresh
