I'm Your Fan -- Just Don't Make Me Watch This!
I do like Leonard Cohen, but I've got to say: this does nothing for me. It resembles Dylan's birthday bash, minus the welcome dash of controversy and unpredictability. It's a big gala event that sounds like the cat's whiskers when it gets mention in the TV Guide, but after all the Big Stars and Beautiful People finish congratulating the Guest of Honour (and each other) the actual highlight ends up being the ten minutes where the Artist finally drags himself onstage, sits down on a stool and sings three songs. But hey -- I'm happy for Leonard.
