How (when) did Harry die?

In the early 1990's, Harry was diagnosed with diabetes and related ailments. On Valentine's Day, 1993, he suffered a massive heart attack. On January 15, 1994, Harry died in his sleep of heart failure.


Is there any truth to the stories Marianne Faithfull is telling about Harry?

Throughout her recent concert tour, Marianne Faithfull has been telling strange stories about Harry's death. She has stated that he died in a dentist's chair and that his casket was lost when it fell into a crevice during the Northridge Earthquake. She has been getting a lot of publicity because of these tales (which seem to get wilder with each telling). But there is absolutely no truth to these stories.


Where can I get a video of Son of Dracula?

Son of Dracula has never been available on home video. Copies occasionally are listed at online auction sites, but these are bootleg copies and may not be of very good quality.


What are Elastic Baby, Freddie's Garden and Whispers?

Elastic Baby and Freddie's Garden are albums by a Dutch group called "Nilsson" (named after Pippi Longstocking's pet monkey). Whisper is by a Christian duet called "Nilsson."


Where can I get the lyrics / tabs/ sheet music to a Nilsson song?

Because of copyright concerns I can not display lyrics in the web pages or send them to you by e-mail.

A legal source for song lyrics online is Songfile. Also, other web sites may not be as careful as this one. So you can try a web search for the title of the song or a line that you know is in the song.

Warner Bros. has published The Nilsson Anthology, a songbook with 25 of Harry's songs arranged for piano, vocal, and guitar. You can order it now from Amazon.com.



We want to stage The Point! as a play. Where can we get the rights/music/lyrics/book?

Unfortunately, I don't know where to go to get the rights to perform The Point! as a play.


Where can I get a copy of Sandman/Son of Dracula/Knnillssonn/That's the Way It Is/Flash Harry ?

Try the used CD and LP sources listed on the Sources page


How is "Nilsson" pronounced?

Harry pronounced it "NILL - SON" (rhymes with "Wilson").
