Morning Man Classic: Ricky Nelson!
Ricky Nelson, one of the best looking men and most talented performers to ever grace a concert stage, television or movie screen was born 79 years ago today.
He grew up in front of America’s eyes performing with his parents and brother on Ozzie & Harriet. He began singing in the show and became one of the biggest teen idols of the 50s and 60s with such hits as I’m Walking, Travelin Man, Poor Little Fool, Teenage Idol and 25 other top 40 hits in all.
Sadly, Nelson died at the age of 45 in a plane crash on New Years Eve 1985. But his music lives on.
