Baez's concerts are still very powerful events and you forgot to mention Cohen's mentor, Judy Collins's, whose voice is Dorian Gray good. Buffy Sainte Marie, another Cohen collaborator, is still amazing too.

Are you on Drugs??? Pete Seeger is a world class musician. Just listen to any of his banjo pieces and see for yourself
He has won countless awards for his musical ability

Pete Seeger is now 90 ! don't forgert he was a a time the only urban and north 5 strings banjo, was later considered as the best banjo player in in this aera. That a lot of musicians were insipirezd by his banjo and his banjo book, to cite bur one Eric Weisberg whom we can"t considérate as an ingrate student. jean pierre (from France)

Je comprends que tu es amateur de Pete Seeger; plus que ça je ne peux pas dire précisement.

Usually I can't get through two paragraphs of your columns, particularly the simplistic political stuff but the entertainment suff is good, this one especially and isn't it amazing that Leonard Cohen can fill a 20,000 seat arena in 2008?(the money hungry sports arena comment was gratuitous)

I have to agree with all of the previous comments. To have a sort-of-a-review on the MSG concert, and on Cohen the person, is informative, but you clearly are a CRITIC, not a reporter.
