Annual Playboy Music Poll

Post by dick » Sat Dec 05, 2009 7:45 am

Just discovered today that Leonard is a candidate for best live band in the annual Playboy Music Poll. Poll can be found in the December issue, but can also be read and voted online. Deadline for mail ballots is December 15.

He has tough competition with the likes of Springsteen, U2, and others, but if we all try hard -- maybe!

It would be helpful to email those you know who may not be following all threads on the forum.

Vote here: ... tml?page=2

Happy Holidays all!

Hi Dick,

Have just voted - I hope Leonard wins - I'll spread the word.

I just voted. It will be a close call between Leonard, Brucie and U2 I'd say. Having being lucky enough to have seen all 3 in concert in the space of 2 weeks in July this year all are deserving winners but for me it has to be Leonard as he was just magical.

Just voted ... with the strange feeling that an era has ended ... what ever happened to that gloriously terrible feeling of naughtiness I had as I smuggled a copy of Playboy into school under my coat? O how unexciting it is to be an adult. Where has that sense of wonder gone?

When do we find out the result of the poll?

When I click on the link, the only thing I get is an entire page of blase darker grey... no writing, no photos, no nothing... just grey... not even the decency of a 404 message.
