Beautiful.......



I have always been a huge Leonard Cohen fan, so I was thrilled when Mr Ratburn brought home the Im Your Man DVD. In case you don't know, I'm Your Man is a live tribute to Leonard Cohen, with performers such as Rufus Wainwright, Antony, The MacGarrigle Sisters, Nick Cave and more...
But this one is my favorite. I had never heard of Antony before I saw this film, and wow, this performance of If It Be Your Will really takes my breath away.
I learned that Antony has a band called Antony and the Johnsons (giggle) If you know anything about this guy, I'd love to hear about it!
UPDATE**http://www.antonyandthejohnsons.com/press/press.html this is a fantastic site, but I pasted this video and other stuff into here by HTML code cuz blogger and Youtube are having issues...(surprised?)...so you will have to type in the "EARL" that's URL to the rest of you.....sorry bout that...if you wanna learn more..wowee, this guy is a trip.
I hope you will watch this video, it's just lovely...

Very beautiful song.

Anthony is like a cross between Ozzy Osbourne (looks) Joe Cocker (performing style) and Boy George (voice)-- What's not to love ;-)

Thanks for sharing. -SSS

I am underwhelmed, people, truly I am....


I guess this post and this musical discovery is all for me, and Lime, Steve and Jodes!

Thank you, Antony.

LOL... I agree with Amadeus.

I do believe he acts a bit like me when I've had about 4 Margarita's and held it a tad to long.

Loved the song. Fab Voice!

I quite like Anthony and the Johnsons but they were'nt playing when we saw the tribute show in Brighton (UK). However, as well as those you mentioned, we had Beth Orton and Jarvis Cocker. What a great night that was.
