Foreword by

Description by OLDIES.com:

At eight years old, Rick Nelson began his career in show business. After a successful run on radio, his family's situation comedy "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" enjoyed a 14 year television tenure. On the April 10, 1957 episode, "Ricky the Drummer," Rick Nelson started his singing career by lip syncing to Fats Domino's "I'm Walkin'." He scored 36 Top-40 singles between 1957 and 1972, ranking him number 5 in Billboard's Top 25 Artists of the Decade (1950-1959). As a country rock pioneer, he influenced Buffalo Springfield, Linda Ronstadt, and the Eagles. This book is a candid account of his journey in rock and roll through stories told by musicians and producers who worked on the road and in the studio with him. Actors and family members also provided invaluable insight.
