Leonard Cohen Forum hates me; live in NYC


I checked out the folks who hate me at leonardcohenforum.com . The actual review by Patricia Zohn is very good and if you want to see what the fans thinks please feel free.

I essentially stand by my opinions (and I absolutely stand by NYC being the media center of the world where we’ve seen everything at least twice) and aren’t the LCFers a little bored with everybody genuflecting to the great man?

No they certainly aren’t (it’s the moral equivalent of Brad Pitt complaining he doesn’t get enough girls) and I think the LCFers are a bit silly (plus calling people morons doesn’t add to the discourse). I saw Paul Simon at the Beacon Theater in 1999 and thought he was well off his game, saw him February 14th, 2009 and thought he was great: sometimes people have bad days. Unfortunately NYC is ground zero for the media and we HAVE seen everything and we do have more experience than other people when it comes to live music. Hartford, Connecticut, is a very nice place, so is Los Angeles, but neither city can touch NYC when it comes to the quantity and the quality of the music. The night I went to Cohen I had to give up tix to Zootopia (in NJ but just under the tunnel). I am sure the average LCFer doesn’t understand why it is a hard choice between Cohen and sets by Kelly Clarkson, Ciara, Flo Rida, Black Eyed Peas. But to love popular music is to appreciate what’s popular and to love Western music is to embrace the trivial and the different and not simply one set of sounds.

Leonard Cohen is an eternal but so what? He wasn’t an eternal on saturday night. The best concert i’ve seen this year was by Welsh twee band Los Campesinos. Perhaps my friends at Leonard Cohen Forum might want to widen their horizons? I somehow doubt it…
