Oh boy, hope that I am not stepping on any toes doing this, please delete if necessary.

Wanted to start a thread for our fav chello player & fellow band member and
friend of the Conchords, Nigel Collins.

We love you Nigel! You are amazing & we are huge supporters of Wellington
Ukuele Orchestra at WTF.

Hey, how 'bout some Nigel pics here, what do ya think? He is so lovely to look at too.

Does anyone have any closeup pics of Nigel? I don't think I have ever seen one.

Good idea! Nigel deserves a little love too.

How's this for starters?

Ive cropped myself out of this pic, I met him in Milwaukee. He is adorable. He is viry sweet, kind & patient. I was so viry excited when I met him but he followed the conversation, for the most part poor Nigel. I had such a hard time getting anything out of my mouth.

Anyhowzit, here is gorgeous Nigel. Notice the hair, I just wanted to touch it sooo badly, but whoopsie that would have been really scary to Nigel. A girl can dream, in my dreams I touched those gorgeous locks. LOL

More Nigel Pics. A few of them that I took in Milwaukee, the rest of the pics were found on the information superhighway, no infringement intended.

I must say, I do love the hair. It's just begging to touched.

Here are a few YouTube clips of him.

These are clips of him singing karaoke. He's singing with Uni (of Uni and her ukulele) in the second clip.

Here's a short interview in LA. The second one is a longer version of the interview:

Oh good lord he nearly gave me a heart attack - I thought he meant they were going their separate ways forever.
Doesn't sound too promising for a 3rd series though. :(

Oh my.. Nigel.. what a breathtaking voice you have :o very nice :yawinkle:
But if you did I'd hold you tight / Into every single night
And we'd fall asleep together / And we'd wake up in the sunlight
Well, maybe I'm a dreamer / But maybe one day you'll see / That dreams are...

This thread could possibly convert me to a part-time Nigelholic. Yes, it could.

OH MY GOODNESS. NIGEL TRAINED AS AN OPERA SINGER. I sing classical music. This was meant to be.
I knew he could sing but...damn, that was good :D
Yupp, I think I've definitely just become a part-time Nigelholic :nod:
