This Day In History: Rick Nelson Dies

On Dec. 31, 1985, actor, singer, songwriter and musician Rick Nelson, along with his fiancée Helen Blair, four members of his band and Nelson’s manager, were killed when the fourteen-seat, DC-3 private plane they were traveling in crash-landed near DeKalb, Texas.

From 1952 to 1966, Nelson appeared on his parents’ television show, The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet. It was while he was on the series that he began singing, which eventually propelled his career into Rock and Roll stardom.

Here’s one of my favorite Ricky Nelson songs. 😀 ❤
