Here is the story of this video straight from the originator Ian Braisby…
I hope you are doing OK on your recovery journey. Keep thinking about you and sending positive thoughts your way.
So in his last Music Talks episode, Terry played Better Days and dedicated it to you, which I thought was really moving. I got to thinking about the Bruce songs that help inspire us through hard times and was especially thinking about No Surrender. The idea came to me while making breakfast one day last week for an alternative final verse especially for your current struggle. I got the words down OK, but really thought you have enough to deal with at the moment without being subjected to my playing and singing. So I contacted Terry and asked him whether one of his more musically inclined guests might be prepared to do something. He reached out to Levi and he went above and beyond.
So this is from us to you – the first part of the lyrics are what I wrote for you, the second part is Levi’s, the performance all his and the whole thing was facilitated by the John Landau of Edinburgh, Mr Terry Smith.
I hope it will help you give you strength on the dark days.

Overall things are going OK. I’m tired of just drinking protein shakes and I really miss solid food. But the biggest issue I’m having right now is insomnia. Normally, I have no problems going to sleep at night but over the past few days, I’m really struggling to go to sleep.
I just lay in the bed and sleep won’t come. My Doctor gave me a prescription for Ambien but that isn’t helping. It’s 11:50pm on Wednesday night and I’m sitting at the computer not being able to go to sleep.
Hopefully this is just a phase I’m going through and soon I’ll get back to my normal pattern but for now, I’ll just try to power through this time period.
