    my parents saw him when i was in da womb. this leads to the interesting question of whether or not i have seen leonard cohen live.

  • _duif

    omfg, I will see him live if it's the last thing I do.

  • tezzagamer

    Hes said he hasnt played the guitar in 14 years so I wouldnt expect him to be proficient. Also, you can expect him to speak sing like on Dear Heather than actually sing because of his age. People should consider these things so that they arent disappointed. For me, just a chance to see him is enough

    Hah - if I manage to get tickets I'll be bringing my 16 year old sister so you won't be the youngest :P I love Cohen but this is going to cost me alot of money that I don't have. It's also worth thinking about his age and how thats going to have an effect on his ability to sing and play the guitar to a live audience.

    Itd sure be cool, id imagine id be the youngest person in the audience though :P

    Cannot freaking wait. I dont care where hes coming in the UK, I am going.

    Think the tour dates and stuff will be posted next month.

  • tezzagamer

    Oh Cohen we freaking love you. I cannot wait till we get tour dates. Unfortunately I only got into Cohen a few years ago so Ive only dreamed of seeing him live and now here is my chance. Thank you so much.

    I don't know why but I can't seem to delete my annoying shout below. Anyway I'm a little concerned - Touring isn't exactly the best thing for a 73 year old's health.

  • RachelApathetic

    AHH AHH AHHH. Read this on wikipedia: On January 13, 2008, Cohen quietly announced to fans a long-anticipated concert tour. The tour, Cohen's first in 15 years, will begin in May 2008 and encompass the US, Canada and Europe. Is this true? If it is I doubt he will come to Scotland meaning I'll have to fork out £100 to go to London and back but its SO worth it!

    hehe, well i did make this Cave/Cohen playlist which ive been listening to a lot this week :P

    If it is just you, you must have had it on some serious repeat. Haha

    O_O Is it just me or has he had like a million more listens in like a week

    It's always been Dylan over Cohen for me, no real reason for it though, just a feeling.

    Januar 2008
  • tezzagamer

    Im pretty sure hes the most amazing lyricist Ive come across. Im a huge Dylan fan, but while some of Dylan may come across masturbatory self indulgence, Cohen seems to talk sense all the time.

    I love Cohen's Waiting For The Miracle... I dreamed about you, baby. It was just the other night. Most of you was naked Ah but some of you was light. The sands of time were falling from your fingers and your thumb, and you were waiting for the miracle, for the miracle to come. Fantastic...

    Januar 2008
  • MIR17

    I just realised how cool Cohen's similar artists are, still not as cool as Waits' mind...

    Januar 2008
  • Lambear

    While Cohen may be relatively neglected, I would hardly call Dylan overrated.

    Januar 2008
  • MIR17

    But Cave, Cohen & Waits is the holy trinity for music and for lyrics, there is no one else

    Januar 2008
  • Kragey

    LOL @Mir! I guess if I had to have a holy trinity, I'd have different ones for different things. Like, a holy trinity for lyrics, a holy trinity for vocals, a holy trinity for melodies...etcetera. Leonard would definitely be in the one for lyrics.

    Januar 2008
  • RachelApathetic

    Be For Real seems to be my life right now. Either way, this is one seriously under rated Cohen song.

    Januar 2008
  • MIR17

    Well, its true Lenny is better than Dylan IMO

    Januar 2008
  • Jack_Owen

    Leonard is painfully underloved on last.fm. 5mil of plays compared to painfully overrated Bob Dylan's 22mil.

    I think one of his most underrated songs is Seems So Long Ago Nancy. So harrowingly beautiful, just as depressing as Famous Blue Raincoat to boot

    Dezember 2007
  • MIR17

    Anyone else think New Skin for the Old Ceremony is really underrated? It's my 2nd favourite after Songs of...

    Dezember 2007
  • MIR17

    Oh yeah, one of my faves too: And just when i was sure his spirit was pure, he drowned himself in the pool, his body is gone but back here on the lawn his spirit continues to drool Genius! =D

    I went through a small obsession with that song recently. Can see it happening again - it's amazing.

    even though my holy trinity is the correct one :P

    Let's just say everybody has their own holy trinity and stick with that. =)

    Waits, Cohen, Reed.

    Cohen, Hank Williams, Lou Reed=Holy Trinity

    Dezember 2007
  • MIR17

    Cave, Cohen, Waits = The Holy Trinity :P

    Dezember 2007
  • RachelApathetic

    @_duif - it probably would be a mismatch. All I was saying is how wonderful it would be for me personally as they are both my favourite artists.

    ...a prisoner of beauty.

    Dezember 2007
  • Wenslauw

    Cave's world is much more bleak than Cohen's world is. In Cave's world relationships are doomed to end in violence and abuse. In Cohen's world they are beauty which is doomed, but worth it none the less.

    Dezember 2007
  • MIR17

    I'd say Cohen is much closer to Cave than Waits or Dylan, maybe because of the lyrical style and subjects, very religious, but also critical of religion and misanthropic :P

    Chelsea Hotel is not a song its an entire movie by Bergman.

    Dezember 2007

    RachelApathetic, I love Cohen and Waits, but that would be an awful mismatch

    Dezember 2007

    If I could be anyone in the world, it would either be Leonard Cohen or Hugh Laurie.
