Sad sad story of one of the icons of popular music. Very well done with lots of inside information.

This "documentary" is more about the people who gained success from Harry Nilsson. Just listen to his songs instead.

I can really hear the cross pollination between Harry and the Beatles.

Love the breakup song.
