I’m so sad that I never got to meet Leonard Nimoy in person. Isn’t that an excellent pic of him? Photo Cred: Leonard Nimoy by Gage Skidmore.
Of course, we all remember him best as Spock but he also had a lot of other memorable moments for us to enjoy. One of the best that takes me right back to the 1960’s (time travel… it’s a thing) is his rendition of The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.
I’ll post the original for you but then I’ll also post a convention clip of him doing a few minutes live. (Scroll down! It’s worth it… I promise!)
Leonard Nimoy The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins
Okay, I really wish I had seen this in person but I’ll have to settle for the video same as you. Honestly, it is impossible to watch this without smiling. Try it I dare ya! This is from the Fan Expo in 2009 posted by tsukishime.
I’ve never been to a Fan Expo but you can tell from the video these guys are just super friendly and super caring of the fans. I think that is one thing that makes Star Trek stand out from all the other franchises out there… the family feeling you get. You can be the nerdiest geek ever and still be welcome. That is pretty special!
