A Bit Of Harry In The Day

Happy birthday, Harry Nilsson. He might be alive today if he hadn't drinken (drunk? drank?) himself to death.  In the late 60s/early 70s he was an exciting new songwriter and performer who looked like he might be the next big thing--even had a #1, his cover of "Without You"--but his taste was too quirky and his lifestyle too extreme. By the mid-70s his career had pretty much petered out. But he left behind some interesting stuff.
