Ricky Nelson, he was gorgeous. He was the younger brother of David Nelson, and the son of Ozzie and Harriet. They did a sit com but I believe were real family, which was unusual back then. There were no reality tv shows. Later he branched out into singing.
David Oswald Nelson (October 24, 1936 – January 11, 2011) was an American actor, director, producer. He was the elder son of bandleader/TV actor Ozzie Nelson and singer Harriet Hilliard and the older brother of singer Eric "Ricky" Nelson.
We lost David Nelson (Adventures of Ozzie & Harriett) in Jan of 2011...not sure if anyone looking at this blog knew he was gone. It did not make much in the news and even the Emmy awards did not include him in their memory section that next year. he was 75 when he passed...and the last of the old Nelson family who was left at that point.
