Poor Little Fool
Ricky Nelson isn’t necessarily remembered as a hit maker, even though he was as popular as Elvis on the charts for a time.
He’s also forgotten as a heartthrob even though he’s clearly down right adorable.
Maybe it’s that squeaky clean Ozzie and Harriet image that makes people omit him in their remembrance of hunks past.
Though, a perusal of his bio proves it was only that – an image.
His life was filled with affairs, illegitimate children and drugs not to mention sons who went on to become Nelson.
The images though are of classic boy next door good looks. There’s a slight mischievousness in his smirk but overall the boy looks wholesome and heartbreakingly cute.
