Harry Nilsson and Waylon Jennings

Double the celebration today with two birthdays of two legendary musicians.

First, it's Harry Nilsson's 68th birthday. He had a golden voice. So much so, that when asked, way back when, John Lennon named him as his favorite. Of course, that statement initiated Harry's fame.

He didn't play concerts but I caught a few photos of him in a more intimate setting...dinner at Klaus Voormann's house...


6/15/41 - 1/15/94

This oughta get the party started...feel free to add rum...



And today is also Waylon's 72nd birthday. Love, love, love this bad boy cowboy....

6/15/37-2/13/02

A few legends on this stage to keep the party rockin'...



Happy Birthday to two of my very favorite photographic subjects!!

And to the rest of you...ROCK ON!

Good stuff! I loved Harry Nilsson in the 70s, even though he never did the top 40 thing. Maybe that's why?

His version of Badfinger's 'Without You' is the definitive version!

His life ended very sadly and ripped off.

Waylon, too was an icon. I appreciate him much more now than I did when I was a young 'rock lover only'.

Thanks for the memories!
