Jim Gordon

Two men named Jim Gordon appear in the credits for Harry Nilsson's recordings. This one is a percussionist. The other Jim Gordon plays horn.

Jim Gordon, the drummer, co-wrote "Layla" with Eric Clapton. When a re-release of "Layla" was nominated for (and won) a Grammy for "Best Rock Song" in 1992, Gordon was unable to attend the ceremony. He was in prison in California. Jim Gordon killed his mother on June 3, 1983, and was sentenced to at least 16 years in prison for second-degree murder.
