Klingt, als klinge Leonard Cohen wie Pink Floyd, wenn David Gilmour #So_Long_Marianne spielt:
His appearance to discuss A Theatre For Dreamers and lockdown culture with Mary Beard, on BBC Front Row Late on Thursday 14 May, 2020. Also includes David and Romany’s performance of Leonard Cohen’s ‚So Long, Marianne‘.
David Gilmour im Gespräch mit Mary Beard und seiner Frau Polly Samson:
David Gilmour: I became a fan very early on. I love his work. This last couple of years with dolly, going to hydra, has freshened him up enormously in my mind.
Polly Samson: (Lacht) Er hat in den letzten Jahren nichts anderes als Leonard Cohen gehört!
David Gilmour: And he got better and better. There are songs all through his career which are so brilliant.
Mary Beard: Gibt es einen Song abgesehen von“Marianne“, den du besonders hervorheben würdest!
David Gilmour: It’s just too many brillant songs. From the very last album that just came out „Thanks for the Dance“ is just a lovley Song. There is a Song called „Going Home“ there are just to many gorgeous songs. If it be your Will. There so many things where he tends towards religious overtones in some other things he does but didn’t claim to believe really in a god.
Mary Beard: One of my friends said it would be king of nice to hear Leonard Cohen singing Wish You Were Here, wouldn’t it?
David Gilmour: To late for that I think!
