Celebrities - Ricky Nelson

America's "Teen Idol", Eric Hilliard Nelson. Starred as himself in "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet", began singing at age 17 (just to impress some girl who liked Elvis) and rose to stardom seemingly, overnight. LIFE magazine coined the phrase "teen idol" in an article on Ricky in the late 50's. He had one of the biggest comebacks in rock history with his 1972 album "Garden Party", which was one of four albums record with his Stone Canyon Band. Nelson has been credited with starting the "country/rock" genre. In his career, he had over 22 gold records and was named the Sixth Greatest Recording Artist of All Time by Billboard. Tragically, he was killed, along with his band, on his way to a concert in Dallas, TX when his private plane caught on fire in mid-flight on December 31, 1985.

1 A brilliant and surprisingly deep musician. It's not that he didn't have his problems and I won't rehash his life but I think it needs to be stressed that when he died in that firey plane crash, his last act was to attempt to save his fiancee's life by shielding her with his own body. Yes, he died a hero! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 17, 2011, 8:34 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
