Ricky
Nelson was a real teenage legend, his real name was Eric Hilliard
Nelson born in Teaneck, New Jersey; on May 8
th,
1940. He died in December 31
th,
1985 in De Kalb Texas.
Ricky
started his career with the TV and Radio show of his parents Oswald
George “Ozzie” Nelson; his father had a big band and his mother
Harriett Hilliard Nelson, was the singer of that band. The Show
called “The adventures of Ozzie and Harriett. Most of his songs
were played in these shows until 1966.
A
few years before the show stopped Ricky Nelson started his career as
a Rock´N´ Roll singer and in between those days he already recorded
a few country songs. After a few cross over hits in the charts, was
the album “Bright Lights And Country Music” released in may 1966.
With his own band, there has been Glen Campbell and Clarence White
bound in this scenario. Next to a original composition, there had
been a composition of Glen Campbell in this album and the rest only
cover hits, but this was the switch for Ricky from a Rock´n Roll
singer to a country singer. Ricky created his own music style and you
can say that it had been the forerunner to country rock.
