I’m so sorry we lost Leonard Cohen so soon. For the past few years I’ve been listening to his songs quite often, and have also bought some of his books and Sylvie Simmons’s biography, in addition to some of his DVDs. You may or may not be aware of the I’m Your Man tribute DVD …
One of my favorite musicians and poets is no longer with us. He died yesterday of an unspecified illness. Rolling Stone: Leonard Cohen Dead at 82 It’s with great sadness that I post the following music video, a song from his last album, You Want it Darker, released this October.
Philip Norman’s biography of John Lennon, John Lennon: The Life, is only $1.99 on Amazon this month. I’m at 6% (of 866 pages), reading about what a prankster John was as a boy. It’s all quite a treat. Vivid, evocative, humane.
I love Florence + The Machine. Here’s “Lover to Lover.” Enjoy!
Here’s Mariza singing “Dona Rosa” (from her latest album, Fado Tradicional). Mariza will be in Bucharest on May 15 for her second concert at Palace Hall.
How wonderful, that second part. Here’s Ian Anderson, “Life’s a Long Song.” He will be in Bucharest on June 20. Can’t wait!
