/ If Leonard Cohen can still....
...cut it at 78 then there is hope for us all.
Went to see him live last night.
I've actually seen Leonard Cohen live! I remember listening to his music/poetry 35 yrs ago and he was in his mid 40's then!
Hurrah for crooked accountants !!!
Yes. I doubt I'd have seen him otherwise. But hey, my gain. And TBH he wasn't just "mailing it in", he was excellent. The musicians he had were superb and he also used a couple of backing singers from the UK - The Webb sisters?
But he was superb: Far lighter, more musical more entertaining than I ever dared hope. He also went on for hours as he was concerned to give people value for money.
Funny reason for not wanting to see him. IMHO he one of the world's most talented people. Glad you liked him, though.
"... my hair has gone, my moustache is grey and I ache in the places that I used to play ..."
I'm sure that I'm not alone when I say;
"Here's hoping that One Direction are blessed with similar longevity!"
The musicians he had here were world class. He is an excellent poet and performer and I would happily recommend any body going to see him provided you aren't expecting death metal, hip hop or one direction.
Saw him three years ago at Glastonbury, I managed to drag my nineteen year old nephew along, was worried my standing as the cool uncle was going to evaporate, until I saw him texting his mates about this old bloke he was watching with tears in his eyes. A beautiful moment.
