RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL #_092 – THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES HISTORY OF ROCK NELSON – PART 2

This is the second of two episodes saluting one of the most famous names in rock and roll history – Rick Nelson

Our first episode tracked his trajectory from child actor to rock star. Now we’ll spotlight the second half of his career, as he gradually evolved from being a fading teen idol to reinventing himself as a county-rock pioneer and an accomplished composer. This includes the true-life story behind one of his biggest records of all time. 

We’ll sample all of his remaining hit singles and present the original versions of any of those songs that inspired Rick to revive them in his own style. 

Then there’s Rick Nelson’s acting career. That continued to develop at the same time his music was finding new horizons. Our resident Rockologist, Ken Deutsch, will be along to report on that, along with other fascinating perspectives on Rick Nelson’s career and musical legacy.
