Hi Deach...tracked you down again ...(don't ask me how!) Leroy's wife Terri here...thank everyone for the brilliant messages of get well wishes and the people who went the extra mile to send a card...Leroy will be so chuffed. The good vibes are working because he's opened his eyes today which is a sign of his recovery...so thanks again his friends at the UU...(Or it was me and his mum threatening to sell his prize uke if he didn't wake up! xx

This is an update to this thread.

Thanks for the update, Deach. We sent off a card on Wednesday, but we see there's a postal strike. Hopefully, Leroy will be home before the strike is over. It's really great to hear that he's doing better!

Just noticed this posted by his wife on his YT from 3 days ago:


Hi everyone...Leroy is a little better...still early days but off the life support and dialysis. Had a few smiles but it's going to be a long haul. Keep thinking of him as you guys are a bit special to him...he would always go straight to the UU site before I even got a good morning and had breakfast! I have told him he's got loads of good messages to read so he better get well soon. Thanks everyone love Terri.

Thanks for the cards and uke keyring...he's out of intensive care and is now on Shawford ward (respiratory probs). They said he's a fighter 'cos he had them on their toes (and me!). Love it if you could do him a get well vid...he must be getting better as he asked for his p.c. so looking much better. Thanks to all love Terri x

That is good news Deach. I personally don't know him at all, but i hope he gets well soon. It is good that he is asking for his p.c. again.

"You guys"? There is no "you guys", there's just "us"! :D

Anyone got any song ideas? That's probably the first step. :)

Haha, of course, you're absolutely right :D I meant you guys that do the vids, as opposed to lil ol me that doesnt :o

I think this could be an ace challenge, especially after seeing other collabs on here. I'll get my thinkin cap on then.....

I thought about "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown", but Leroy's name isn't Brown, and that song doesn't have a happy ending for the titular character, so I ditched it. :confused:

Hey, what about Wheatus' "Leroy"?

It's pretty funny, and I reckon it could work... :)

I'm down for whatever. I think Lee by Tenacious-D would be pretty funny but I'm not sure that it's very 'collab-friendly' :D

I think that's an ace idea....in work so only been able to get a quick feel of the tune, and the lyrics, but looks good!

I think the turnaround on this should be quick, which might necessitate a different strategy. What about just a video of get well messages for Leroy? We can put some background music in there as a soundtrack.

That's a good idea. Gets my vote
