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 81 years ago yesterday.

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.

2 Remarks

  1. I still remember exactly where I was and what my family and I were doing when we heard the news of his death. I was only 9 years old at that time, but I already knew very well who he was and loved his music. I still do. Plus, he’s one of the most gorgeous men to ever grace a stage. RIP.

  2. I’ve always wondered if his twins married and had children
