Today in Music History: December 31
Many days in music history do not pass without their share of tragedy. Such was the case for New Year's Eve 1985.
1985 Ricky Nelson, along with six others, was killed when his chartered light aircraft crashed in Texas. Nelson had played himself on his parents' US TV 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.' He is credited with the 1958 US No.1 'Poor Little Fool', 1961 UK No.2 single 'Hello Mary Lou' plus over 30 US Top 40 hit singles.
And the music goes on beating to the rhythm of the changing times...
