Biografia

Paul Hamilton Williams (born September 19, 1940, in Omaha, Nebraska, USA) is an American musician, composer, songwriter and actor.

Williams is responsible for a number of enduring pop hits from the 1970s, including “(Just an) Old Fashioned Love Song”, a U.S. top-ten hit for the band Three Dog Night in late 1971 which reached #4, and a number of Carpenters hits, most notably “We’ve Only Just Begun”, which has since become a cover-band standard and de rigueur for weddings throughout North America. An early collaboration with Roger Nichols, “Someday Man”, was covered by The Monkees (a group for which he auditioned but was not cast) on a 1969 single, and was the first Monkees’ release not published by Screen Gems.

A frequent cowriter of Williams was musician Kenneth Ascher,their songs together included the popular children’s favorite “The Rainbow Connection”, sung by Kermit the Frog in The Muppet Movie. Most recently, he collaborated with Scissor Sisters on their second album, Ta-Dah.

Williams has worked on the music of a number of films, including writing and singing on Bugsy Malone. He wrote the music for a musical production of Happy Days that debuted in 2007.

He is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame Songwriters Hall of Fame Bio and his songs have been performed by both pop and country music artists. He has won one Academy Award Academy Awards Database, two Grammy Awards and several Golden Globe Awards Golden Globes.

    Only been of recent that I've been getting into his music. Very good indeed. Apparently he's been involved with the new Daft Punk album :)

    Why is he connected to the 'Suicided Musicians' group? Paul Williams is very much still alive. I know, I touched his hand.

    Really unappreciated composer as he wrote some of pop music's most classic songs. "What Would They Say?" is one of his recordings that gets played on my iPod fairly often as I truly can relate to its words and beauty. Let's not forget it was also used in John Travolta's TV-movie "The Boy In The Plastic Bubble" as well as John himself singing it.

    What's really funny is that he (the real Paul Williams) more or less reprised his role as Swan on an episode of The Hardy Boys (the 1970s TV show). Anyway, that movie is probably the best rock opera ever. Movie anyway.
