The many lives of Leonard





I just saw Leonard Cohen play live with his amazing band last night. If he is touring anywhere near you GO.
It will be one of the most rewarding experiences you have ever had. At 75, he is at the top of his craft and form. He has so much energy and life in him!
And he's funny too!
What shows have you seen lately?
Did you have a live music experience that you will never forget?

This was probably the best show I have ever seen.

  4. I saw him live many years ago at a music festival. His lyrics are great, aren't they? Hey, that's no way to say goodbye!

    Do you also like Joni Mitchell and Al Stewart?

  8. I saw him at The Orpheum, Vancouver, in the early 90s. He's so tall. Women were throwing their underwear onto the stage. It was the best show I've ever attended, out of many, many excellent shows. "I was born with the gift of a golden voice"... and a dry sense of humour, too. It may not be a golden but any master can make beautiful sounds on a cheap instrument.

  13. Bob Dylan three years ago at our county fair. Oh, that crowd became rowdy. I think we stood up the whole time, the whole two thousand of us, in the presence of the master!
