I've been a fan for nearly 40 years and at last got to see Leonard Cohen at the MEN Arena in Manchester on Sunday evening. The standing ovations that we gave him were nothing. He gave himself totally to every moment of performance and every nuance of every song and he gave generous mention to every one of his team of musicians, technicians and roadies. Did I say performance? I don't think it was a performance as such - it was Leonard Cohen as honest and human as he has always been which is why he has drawn so many to him, young and old over these many years.
Hello to Sharon and Yiar (hope I spelt that correctly) who'd come all the way from Israel and with whom we shared a taxi and now our memories too.
