Let Harry in already.

Harry Nilsson is "too good" for this Wall of Shame. But he should be let in anyway, so he can sit beside that chart-breaking and world shaking artist Spooner Oldham.

anyone who writes and records "You're Breakin' My Heart" deserves a place in the Hall . . . "Everybody's Talkin'" about it . . .

It still schocks me why Harry is not in the HOF. If he doesn't get in it should be called the Hall of Shame. This is the man that the Beatles called their favorite artist. Come on man! Look at all these so-called artist that are in and can't even write a song or sing a lick. If Harry never gets in someone should have their ass tore-up.

I'm with you on that brother, big-time snub. Nilsson Schmilsson a winner? Heck Yes.

Harry must be part of the fame league. Why we need to convince you of that is beyond me. He is rock royalty. 21 years after his death and we're still talkin about him.....hmmmmm

Are Harry Nilsson and Nilsson the same person?

Posted by Roy on Friday, 07.24.15 @ 10:46am


Roy: Yes, they are.

Posted by SotN on Friday, 07.24.15 @ 11:00am


Yes Harry Nilsson just used his last on his records.

Posted by Greg F on Friday, 07.24.15 @ 11:01am


Yes Harry Nilsson just used his last name on his records.

Posted by Greg F on Friday, 07.24.15 @ 11:03am


Will he be nominated as Harry Nilsson or Nilsson?

Posted by Roy on Friday, 07.24.15 @ 11:37am


Probably as Harry Nilsson.

Hall of Fame...what a joke. they should be ashamed to never have put harry nilsson in the hall of fame. winning grammys, writing top hits for other artists, doing a full length music cartoon, which schools still show to children. one of the greatest voices of the ROCK era.
Not to mention the Moody Blues. Rock of fame used to mean something. Im sure their staff is now of this newer generation whos music will be forgotten in a year. And rap is not rock. For us who grew up in the 60's 70's and even 80's our music lives still. shame on you Hall of Fame, you have lost respect for bad choices and judgement.

I STAND WITH MY BROTHER GARY ON THIS AND WITH ZAK AND THE REST OF THE NILSSON FAMILY, HARRYS MUSIC IS TO IMPORTANT TO BE SNUBED. EVERYONE FROM ALEX TEBECK TO DORIS DAY HAS KNOW FOR A VERY LONG TIME THAT HE SHOULD BE IN THE HALL. SNUB HIM NO MORE, HIS BEST FRIENDS KNOW THE TRUE MAGIC THAT HE DID. HARRY WAS ABLE TO BE A STAR WITHOUT ANY ONE KNOWING HIM. EVEN TODAY FOLKS ASK ME ABOUT HIM. I HAVE BEEN FAIRLY SILENT ABOUT MY BIG BROTHER, BUT NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND UP AND SHOUT, PUT HARRY IN THE HALL. D E NILSSON
