The pair returned to the studio that afternoon, but a new song wasn’t coming together as they’d hoped. According to the new biography  Nilsson: The Life of a Singer-Songwriter , distractions and disruptions were common during these sessions. It had already been quite a week. The pair of friends had begun production on Pussy Cats , then known as Strange Pussies , in late March, and the drinks were flowing from the first afternoon. Five days in, they sat zonked out in front of a mixing board. Nilsson, once a pudgy-faced Brooklyn kid with a choirboy voice, had grown out his blond hair and mangy beard. As was typical when he gained weight, he’d begun to bloat. Earlier in the week, they were visited by Lennon’s former bandmate Paul McCartney, who was accompanied by Stevie Wonder, when a recording session broke out. 1 This was normal stuff in .’s anarchic ’70s music scene. Luminaries colliding, impromptu sessions turned coke binges turned creative confabs. Just a week earlier, the whole gang collaborated on Mick Jagger’s solo song “ Too Many Cooks (Spoil the Soup) .” Though that song wasn’t released for 34 years, its creation was offhanded and easy. But on this day in early April, it wasn’t so easy for Nilsson.
