Harry Nilsson was born in Brooklyn and grew up in it's Bushwick section. "The two brightest moments were when I saw the guy shot in the neck with the zip gun. When I was about nine, almost ten, And then after that my mother, sister and I were beaten up by a gang of black girls, a youth gang, in Brooklyn. The next spring we left town." -- Harry Nilsson

HARRY NILSSON AND I SHARE FAMILY. MY FATHER'S BROTHER MARRIED HIS FATHER'S SISTER. SO YOU SEE,WE BOTH HAD THE SAME AUNT (& COUSINS)...BECAUSE OF MY AUNT PENNY NILSSON BRADY. I WISH I COULD GO BACK IN TIME AND MEET HIM. I SUPPOSE IT COULD HAVE BEEN BUT I DID NOT APPRECIATE HIS TALENT OR WHO HE WAS AT THE TIME(I WAS BORN A BIT LATER THAN HE). REGRET IT. WISH I DID. STRANGE CONNECTION TO THE BEATLES TOO. HARRY WAS GREAT FRIENDS WITH GEORGE AND JOHN. AND RINGO MARRIED THE GIRL FROM ROSEDALE QUEENS BARBARA GOLDBACH OR KNOWN NOW AS BARBARA BACH THE BEAUTIFUL BOND GIRL WHO AS A CHILD LIVED ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY MOTHER'S SISTER ADELE TOTANS IN QUEENS AS I STATED (WE ALL WENT TO THE MOVIES ONCE AS KIDS). SO, I HAVE CONNECTIONS TO THE BEATLES (HOWEVER REMOTE, DISTANT) FROM BOTH SIDES (MOM & DAD)BY THE WAY WHEN HARRY WAS A LAD MY FATER BABYSAT FOR HIM (HE WAS FOND OF HIM) AND HEY MAYBE WHO KNOWS I WILL STILL GET TO MEET MY FAVORITE BEATLE...PAUL! YEAH, I KNOW...IN MY DREAMS. BY THE WAY IF PAUL SHOULD READ THIS I AM VERY ATTRACTIVE :) HEY YA NEVER KNOW. LOL
