This August 2016 will see the Nelson brothers commemorate the memory of their father, Ricky Nelson, as they perform under the name, 'Ricky Nelson Remembered.'
The Nelson brothers are no stranger to fame. Both are members of the American rock band, Nelson, founded by the twins in 1990. Since the founding of their band, they've achieved great success throughout the early 1990s, notably with their debut album, After the Rain. The album spawned the number 1 hit, '(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection' and eventually hit double platinum.
Although Nelson shifted away from Geffen Records in 1995, the band continued to perform under their own independent label, Stone Canyon Records, to this day. Nelson's success, along with the twin's own individual success in the entertainment industry, have cemented both in American rock canon.
And, interestingly enough, their success also made their family – the Nelson family – the only one to achieve number one record status in three successive generations, starting with their grandparents, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson.
Ricky Nelson Remembered
Their father, Ricky Nelson, needs no introduction, either. Born Eric Hilliard Nelson, he was best known as an American actor, singer-songwriter and musician. He notably had 53 songs hit the Billboard Hot 100 throughout the years of 1957 and 1973, with 'Poor Little Fool' gaining the honor of being the first song to rank number 1 on the then new Billboard Hot 100.
Throughout the 1950s to the early 1970s, Nelson enjoyed a prolific career as an actor, up until the cancellation of his family's television series, 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, in 1966. Nelson continue to make occasional guest appearances on various television programs, up until his tragic death in December 1985.
