Harry Nilsson's full name was "Harry Edward Nilsson III]" not "Harry Edward Nelson" as has been reported. Harry was named after his father, Harry Edward Nilsson, Jr. and never used the name "Neslon."


Harry Nilsson's name was so often misspelled as "Harry Nillson," "Harry Nillsson," "Harry Nilson," "Harry Neilson," "Harry Nelson," "Harry Neilson," etc.) that Harry released an album called Knnillssonn (pronounced the same as "Nilsson").
