This review is from: Nilsson: The Life of a Singer-Songwriter (Hardcover)
Harry Nilsson was a very gifted singer and occasional songwriter. Sadly his fondness for the good life led to his physical and professional demise. The author is quite kind to Nilsson by exaggerating the merits of his work post Richard Perry. Nevertheless the book does detail Harry's life and all the celebrities he met and partied with. The sad fact remains that Nilsson never performed live and that his greatest hits Without You and Everybody's Takin were written by other artists. Maybe he wasn't quite the genius the author thinks he was.
