Ricky Nelson now part of "SINGING LEGENDS"
The History of Rock and Roll had many innovators. A special series began several months ago on sampod4u.com with Elvis Presley. It followed with The Everly Brothers in installment #2. Next came Fats Domino. And then it was time for Ricky Nelson.
When major figures in the Rock and Roll Industry are asked about which people had the most influence on the beginnings of the genre and the most influence on others, Rick is always one of those mentioned. One of his most popular recordings has the distinction of being the first #1 Hit Single on Billboard Magazine's first Top !00 Chart Listings. That one was "Poor Little Fool". But that's not all...between 1957 and 1973, he placed 53 songs in the Top 100.
This amazing career was highlighted throughout the month of January on www.sampod4u.com. on the ROCK AND ROLL INNOVATORS page. Now, it has become part of a new SINGING LEGENDS page. Read the history, view some special youtube performances, hear some of the most popular of his music. See what others have said about him. Watch his sons give a special performance in his memory. All this and much more is now available on sampod4u.
