Remembering Ricky Nelson

My first teen idol was Ricky Nelson, in the early sixties. He starred on the classic tv show "Ozzie and Harriet" (1952-1966), and always closed the show with one of his songs. His dad was a band leader and his mom was a singer. Ricky and his brother David appeared on their parents radido show beginning in 1949. Ricky Nelson began his singing career in the late 50's, and in the early 60's he became known as Rick Nelson. He had many hits during the 60's, including "Travelin' Man", "Hello Mary Lou", "Teenage Idol", and "It's Up to You". His last hit "Garden Party" was in 1972. Ricky Nelson began a comeback in the 80's doing oldies concerts, but in 1985 he died in a plane crash on the way to a concert. He was only 45 years old.

The site is looking piece ostentatious and it gets the guests eyes. Outline is really basic and a decent easy to use interface.
