Leonard Nimoy and the Bangles

I think one of the roles I will most remember Leonard Nimoy for (aside from the usual suspects) is his appearance in the Bangles video “Going Down to Liverpool.” He played the chauffeur, driving the ladies around and giving quizzical looks in the rearview mirror as the band sang in the back seat. This is the only Bangles song and video that I’ve ever liked, and the memory of Leonard Nimoy, regal and stoic as he drove, has stayed with me all these years later.

  1. I don’t remember that video, but I definitely remember watching Star Trek as a kid. Was one of my brother’s and my favorite shows.

  2. My favorite Nimoy moment will always be “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.” It never fails to make me smile. So silly, so Sixties, but so awesome.
