    Stealing copywritten images is a no-no, even when drinking.

    After reading their wiki bio, I was kind of thinking you might have known him.

    Hell of a nice guy, unlike the rest of us drug-addled, hard drinking,stay up all night kind of musicians. When I was working with Nilsson at RCA at 2 in the morning, we'd head out and find the sleasiest bars (which is not hard in L.A.), and there, Harry would find some peace; no one knew WTF he was, and we hung with the low-lifes. I know Harry got his inspiration for many creations from those boozy nights.

    Thinking of the musical tripe that I'd hear at sleaze bars, I can only wonder how that would be inspiring.

    You know, in those days, there were just bars; down and out, maybe a jukebox, I don't remember music. What I do remember is I wanted Harry to go do his next album (after "The Point") in England. They had the best electronics (with the Germans) in the world. American stuff was junk, I knew. I wanted George Martin to produce him, but he chose the producer who'd done Barbra Streisand, Richard Perry(who I did not get along with) and, bingo! Harry had some hits. "Put the lime in the coconut." :clapping:
