A well-known Grand Junction musician is recovering nicely following an accident last December.

Huey Plumleigh, keyboardist and vocalist for bands such as Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Grand Junction's 3-Peace Band, was struck by a vehicle last December 21 while crossing a street in Grand Junction. A life-long resident of the valley, Huey had just left Hart Music at 4th and Main in Grand Junction.

Huey suffered several broken ribs and a broken clavicle. Fortunately, he's a trooper and is recovering nicely. As he says in his Facebook profile, "I am a nice guy and very strong."

Does his name ring a bell? It should. You've probably heard him perform at one of many local venues. That's Huey at far left in the photo above. Sometimes he's with a band, other times he does a single. Residents at various Grand Junction assisted living facilities frequently enjoy shows with Huey.

As of February 5, Huey is well on the road to recovery.

Huey's wife, Rhealene, shared the following via Facebook:

We are well into the new year. Hugh is doing well, and will be returning to work slowly but surely. He has become more active every day, and even drove himself to the dr yesterday. He is on the mend, both physically and mentally (although he never lost his skills for very long...he was heavily drugged...)

I spoke with Huey just moments ago. I asked when we could expect him back on the music scene. He replied by saying he would be gigging again by March.
