Let’s take a trip into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame! The year is 1987 and there has been a new addition. This is certainly not a ‘Poor Little Fool’ – it is the one and only Rick Nelson!

Breaking onto the scene by playing alongside his family in the long running television series ‘The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet’, Rick went on to become a huge success playing roles in films such as ‘Here Come The Nelsons’ and ‘Rio Bravo’ where he received a Golden Globe nomination.

He had 53 singles on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’ – and even better, ranked #49 on ‘TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Stars of All Time’.  Talk about career highlights!
