The Everybody's Talking at Me Guy.

Nilsson's music is ubiquitous. A lot of his songs are recognizable but you probably can't remember who sang it. Well, this show is going to help you remember. In his early career, he became famous for an incredible voice. In his later career, he became famous for his carousing and the destruction of his blessed pipes while partying with John Lennon. The guy was a combination of gloriousness and a slow motion train wreck. 

It's likely that if he hadn't been such an independent, hornery cuss he could've gone huger than huge. He did things his own way and probably shot some airballs along the way. Still, you have to respect that he stuck to his guns.

Partying, Partying.
