Marianne Faithfull

Twentieth Century Blues - An Evening In The Weimar Republic
Twentieth Century Blues - An Evening In The Weimar Republic
During her tour to promote her album Twentieth Century Blues, Marianne Faithfull performed Harry Nilsson's "Don't Forget Me".

Before singing the song, she told a tall tale. She said that Harry died having root canal work after his "teeth fucked up, which is the first thing that happens when you stop drinking and taking drugs"; then, right before the Northridge Earthquake hit, his body was moved to an L.A. funeral parlor, where he "fell down a crack in a chasm so deep he was never seen again. True story."

Of course, there is no truth to her story.

I'm watching the DVD "Marianne Faithfull Sings Kurt Weill" (1997) in which she tells the same story. I'm NOT very knowledgeable about Nilsson, so I was almost ready to believe her tale.
