Leonard Cohen, World Tour Musicians, & Fred Take Caesars Palace
And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey and the plywood violin
I practiced every night, now I’m ready
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin
From First We Take Manhattan by Leonard Cohen
Fred, shown cradled in the Cohen cuddle in the above screenshot, is the LeonardCohenForum mascot monkey – obviously. After making sporadic appearances on the Tour bus, at various venues, and, occasionally in concert, Fred debuted at Caesar’s Palace during First We Take Manhattan (at the 5 minute mark of the video).
