LEONARDCOHEN.COM added the Leonard Cohen | Halls of Fame site to their links page. This was a surprise to me.

This is how they described it:

Since some of the bios for the awards are really short, or no bios at all, I have added the induction speeches of Salman Rushdie, Lou Reed, and Adrienne Clarkson, as well as all of Leonard Cohen's acceptance speeches in written form to the Halls of Fame site. More photos too. I have also added an extra post which combines all of the awards bios into one post so they will all appear on the same page because there are too many of them now.

The only Canadian to receive a Kennedy Center Honor so far is Actor Hume Cronyn in 1986 (born July 18, 1911, London, Canada; died June 15, 2003) husband of Jessica Tandy, who also received the honor the same year.

You have to be alive to receive the Kennedy Center Honor. Once you're dead, you can never get it.

I've been having technical problems with google blogger/blogspot and payment for Leonard Cohen | Halls of Fame due to google's change in payment set-ups and third party involvements. As a result, someone else has bought http://www.leonardcohenhallsoffame.com. I don't want to deal with it anymore. I'm not that computer savvy.

This will be the permanent address from now on (the old address), which I don't ever have to pay for. FREE FOR LIFE AND THE SITE WILL BE UP EVEN AFTER I DIE :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've just been listening to Leonard's induction speech into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (2008). In his speech, he quotes John Landau's famous statement "I have seen the future of Rock and Roll and it is...". Now I know that Landau made this statement and was talking about Bruce Springsteen. Was Leonard just joking or did Landau really once said "...and it is not Leonard Cohen"?

I was just wondering, maybe someone could enlighten me. :)
