|Drummer Jonathan Mover credits Harry Nilsson's The Point! with inspiring his interest in music. |
"I first got into music when I was a kid through a cartoon called The Point! by Harry Nilsson. I went wild when I saw it; it had great music and a great story. My parents got me the record - it was either Jim Gordon or Jim Keltner on drums, and the whole gang of musicians associated with them. That was the thing that really got me into music, and from time to time I still actually listen to it."
