Yeah Spaw, I was thinking the same about Leon.
For one brief shining moment I thought I might actually get to MEET him. He collected National steel Ukeleles. I had one. Sent the details to "his people". Pictured him inviting me to his Chateau, taking the uke, handing me two grand, and then saying "You moost join us for dinner, and afterwards Eric and Bobby are coomin' over for a session, if you'd like to do soom pickin'".
A year later I got a note from "his people", saying "sorry, he's not interested".
