Welcome Back: Nelson
The ‘last stars of hair metal’ return to the melodic rock that made them.
On September 29, 1990, the number one song in America was the debut single by melodic hard rock band Nelson – (Can’t Live Without Your) Love And Affection. The leaders of the group were identical twins Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, and their overnight success was part of a bigger story: that of a legendary showbiz family dynasty. The twins’ father was rock’n’roll singer and actor Ricky Nelson, who died in a plane crash in 1985. Their grandparents had the title roles in long-running US sitcom The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet.
