PostSubject: Leonard Cohen - The Sexiest, Coolest Man Alive   Wed Jun 18, 2008 7:29 pm

20 years since as I last saw him. Hoping not to wait another 20 but as he gracefully but sadly told me from the stage that he didn't "have 20 years left in him." He was better than i remember in the Stadium at the 7pm and 9pm shows in 88. And he played for longer and with as much style and energy as I recall in '78.
I would kill, well..., to be that stylish, sexy and cool when I am 60 never to mind 70.

I was there on Saturday myself. It was fantastic though I could not find the Ely Wine Bar stand. I had to content myself with Mojitos and Heineken.

Leonard was absolutely brilliant. It was 10 times better than I expected and I was really looking forward to it.

Coolest? This man would have something to say about that!

Speaking as a straight male I can honestly say that Leonard Cohen is and has always been, to me, by far the sexiest and most seductive man alive.
Have a look at this interview from 1966....

It is a very good interview, and it's plain to see how he's charming the pants off her.

Fascinating. And what is truly alluring is the evolution over the 40 years of that bemused, confident, humility.

Funny old world.

Met Iggy a few years back and he was calling me Sir. I felt like a Dad talking to a toubled, albeit gracious, teenager.

After Leonard's performance, as a straight man too, i could happily chant "lover, lover, lover come back to me."

Now could Mr Hi-Taoi pop off to a tribunal and take Norris with him. Actually David too!
I'm over my admiration from back in the day when he was taking the views of the parents of those COIR retards on and has become too much of a shreaking shrew in recent days.

The initials are the same but there's nobody cooler or sexier than this man


No other man nor beast could master a stepladder pose or indeed make a pioneer pin seem so hip

Ní raibh mé ábalta dul... ní raibh an t-airgead agam... seans go gcabróidh mo bhrón, mar sin, mise a bheith mar an 'next Leonard' - má thosnaím ag scríobh cúpla amhrán Razz

seans go gcabróidh - maybe __ will help
mo bhrón - my sorrow
a bheith - to be
'next Leonard' - lucky f*cker
má thosnaím ag scríobh - if I start writing
