My Interview with Matthew Nelson
I remember watching 'Ozzy and Harriet' in syndication as a kid and my mom would swoon over Ricky Nelson.
Today I had the privilege of speaking to Matthew Nelson, son of Ricky and grandson to Ozzy and Harriet Nelson, as he preps for his concert along with twin brother Gunner, this weekend at the Wild Rose Casino in Clinton.
Listen to my interview with Matthew Nelson as he talks about his father, Linda Ronstadt and what artists are on his playlist.
The Christmas concert at the Wild Rose Casino, Clinton stars the third generation of #1 Nelson family hit makers, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson. They have a blend of Everly Brothers-style harmonies and Smothers Brothers-style comedy, is not just a rock concert with a few holiday songs thrown in Matthew says.
Christmas with the Nelsons delivers Christmas classics the Nelson family way along with their 90’s hits “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love & Affection”, “After the Rain." They'll be interweaving quick humor and soulful vocals that will take you on a sleigh ride through time.
