About the only thing I can think of by Rick Nelson, besides his son's Gunner & Matthew, is the song "Garden Party".


Rick comes from a family that is well known in Hollywood and the music industry.

Yeah i like a lot of his material although my favourite numbers are HELLO, MARY LOU, IT'S LATE & GARDEN PARTY.

An original 1950s U.S. rock & roller who crossed over to country/rock in the late 1960s & early 1970s then by the end of the 1970s he was playing on the 1950s rock & roll revival circuit and died 'on the road' in an air crash in 1985 very sad...

Ritchie Blackmore said in an interview that he took the riff for Black Night from Ricky Nelson's version of Summertime. I think it is from James Burton's guitar.

No, can't say I recognize her face. I googled her filmography to see what she has acted in, and I can honestly say I have only seen one film she has been in, Down and Out in Beverly Hills, and I still dont recognize her.


She does have that "Nelson" face though
