Recognize this gentleman? Chances are you have exchanged a hello, and some cash with this man. For 25 years Nelson LeClair has greeted guests at Live Music Venue, 3rd and Lindsley Nashville.

 

Born 1941 in Kapuskasing ONT Canada, Former NHL Veteran, playing  with the Boston Bruins  in the 60's , in the era of only 6 teams, no helmets, and hard hits, Nelly after 22 seasons of up and down  Pro Hockey, found himself in Nashville coaching the Nashville South Stars.  Mid season 1983 , the team folded and Nelly, wife Cheryl, and sons Danny and Richard made Nashville the last stop. Through the years the wear and tear of the long hockey career took it's toll on his health. After 2005 Heart Bypass surgery, Nelly got a boost, but at 75 years old, the bone to bone knee joints just gave out. Nelly has had two full knee replacements in the last five months, and returned to man the door at 3rd and Lindsley last week , boasting being now two inches taller, and ready to resume his golf game  and frequent trips to the dance floor. On Monday April 25, a number of Nelly's friends will present  a Night  of Music , celebrating our friend, in hopes of getting him standing up and caught up financially.  Jack Pearson, Jimmy Hall, Kree Harrison, Tom Hemby, Tim Buppert, and many more will hit the stage at 7:30, a $15 dollar donation, tickets available 3rdandlindsley.com, or 866-468-3401.
