I’ve seen Leonard Cohen a bunch in recent years. He’s about to turn 80. Leonard Cohen’s concert was probably one of the best things I’ve ever seen in my life. It was like a religious experience. It’s probably one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen at a concert. It was the quietest concert I’ve ever seen, and probably the most beautiful.quotedown2

    It’s the same sentence that I said when I have seen Elton John ‘s concert in Milan some years ago!Genearous Elton ,he is able to donate so much feelings in his music that move all your senses.It’s impossible to stay quiet in the armchair at his concert because his music is unique!
