This is a good likeness. My love and I were planning to see him Monday night, but unfortunately a number of the band are ill, so the concert has been postponed until April 26th.

I read your comment on your dog, I can't add a :+fav:to that (sorry). My boy is 13 this year. He too is getting old. I already think of when he will leave me.

...thanks for Your appreciaton on Leonard.Well,he is worth waiting for,I can promise you!
I dont understand why You mentioned that You are sorry,for not "adding a fave" to my last drawing on my lost dog.I really don't care ,if You fave my works,or not.If people want to fave,they do it,if not,they don't.I don't resume my artistic competences on "faves",really,really not...I am sorry for Your your "boy",by the way,I can understand only too well,this,on contrary.

yes... we have seen him before so I was looking forward to it.

I did not add the :+fav: because of the emotional impact on myself. I think the picture is really well done, and I just wanted you to know that and usually when I seem something that I think is good I add a :+fav:. But for myself, it points to an inevitable future that I would rather not have, but will have of course. It is just how life is.

good so you were not at the show where he collapsed on stage from exhaustion

history:

Leonard Cohen is recovering after collapsing on stage in Spain.
The veteran poet and performer was part-way through his song Bird On The Wire during a concert in Valencia on Friday night when he fainted, causing the band to stop
playing to rush to his aid.
The concert was stopped.
A video showing Canadian-born Cohen kneeling down several times and then keeling over sideways during a saxophone solo.
Cohen, right, who will be 75 tomorrow, was taken by ambulance to Hospital 9 de Octubre in Valencia but released early yesterday.
His music company said he had suffered a stomach complaint.
Cohen is due to perform the last show of his Spanish tour tomorrow.
Trucks carrying equipment for the show in Barcelona arrived at the venue yesterday morning.
Cohen had to come out of retirement five years ago when he found that most of his
retirement fund had disappeared in a disputed case of mismanagement

...the show I was,was fantastic,and unforgettable,as I mentioned:iconlovesplz:
You are talking about an event,which happened 3 years ago...it certainly was very sad for Leonard,and luckeley he recoverd very well,since...
I don't understand,why You are saying he will"be 75 tomorrow???...Leonard is born on 21st of September 1934,and therefore 79 years,so he will celebrate his 80 years Jubilee this year!And I can tell You,when I saw him on stage few months ago,he was AMAZING,even jumping around inbetween the show,like a 17year young teenager!:iconinloveplz:

I agree compare his Isle of White show to these shows no comparison I still like his Chelsea Hotel where he talkes about being with Janis Joplin:

You told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
you fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
we are ugly but we have the music."

And then you got away, didn't you babe...

I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best,
I can't keep track of each fallen robin.
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
that's all, I don't even think of you that often.

I like this song very much,myself...he still is including it in his repertory on life shows..
...Leonard said,much later,after having made this tribute to Janis Joplin,
"that he never discusses his mistresses or his tailors"...But,for Joplin,"HE MADE AN EXCEPTION":giggle:

Dear Flori I am sorry for taking so long to comment. This is wonderful work:love: my preference would be this drawing. The details are special, particularly the old wise eyes but what I find most interesting is the symbols. I did some research and found out it is the symbol is of :heart: The Order of the Unified Heart :heart: which is every interesting. I did find your symbol hidden discreetly as well:)
Ps I have not forgotten my promise, the next time a opportunity comes up for me to take a photo I will send you a copy :nod:.
