    Curse you. He played just down the street from me about three weeks ago, and I couldn't get tickets. Then, to make things worse, the most pompous [word that would be moderated] I know met him.

    Interesting. Did not know the 70 yo set could be sexy🙂
    I heard an interview with Judy Collins who was big when he was unknown, found him or vice versa, and she invited him to sing 'Suzanne' onstage with her. She said she had to literally yank him by the arm and get him onstage he was so nervous! He finally calmed down and they sang a duet of the song to thunderous applause.

    Indeed. I'm straight and male and I still think the guy is not just sexy, but grandpa sexy.

    I just watched the Youtube rendition of "Everybody Knows", which is one of my FAVOURITE SONGS OF ALL TIME. I suppose the earlier comments about Mr. Cohen tending to get nervous onstage are true, because he must have some reason to be as hammered as he is in that video.

    The voice is sexy, and the style, so therefore, he is sexy in a way.

    I have about a dozen songs on my ipod, been a fan for a while. I didn't know he suffered from stage fright. It's weird to hear that about performers, they hide it well. Most people I know have never even heard of Cohen.

    His voice sounded better than I've ever heard it. Really deep and full.
    The band were brilliant musicians and his three backing vocalists must have been chosen on looks and capabilities... unbelievably so.

    He's like a charming old grandfather on stage, but fully there at the same time, if you know what I mean.

    And the songs. Well, one doesn't really need to elaborate on how good the songs are. From Bird on a wire through to Sisters of mercy! Excellent stuff. And he played Suzanne solo on his acoustic guitar.

    Tacoma Trailer is an amazing amazing song. Not like any Leonard Cohen song you've likely heard.

    Check it out. Any classical music fans will like this one.
