Dedicated to the original Teenage Idol! The incredibly beautiful and talented Eric Hilliard "Ricky" Nelson (May 8, 1940 - December 31, 1985). Singer, Songwriter, Actor, Legend.






"A mural/collage of the artists who were regular attenders on American Bandstand in the 1950’s and first 3 years of the 1960’s in the Dick Clark restaurant on the NJ Turnpike. The American Bandstand Studio at Enterprise Center 4548 Market St."

That was the tag line of the photo. It should be noted, however, that Ricky was never on American Bandstand… Only time he did a Dick Clark show was in 1978, singing “Mystery Train”.

Today marks the day we lost a Legend… because today is the day we lost Janis Joplin… Such a beautiful woman, with an incredible voice and unsurpassed talent… One of the most amazing human beings to ever grace this earth with her presence… Gone but never forgotten ♥ Love you, girl :)

thevintagebroad said: I thought my boyfriend was Rickys biggest fan! Have you always been a fan? We probably have the majority of his vinyls and a bunch of wall art too!

I think your boyfriend has competition… that competition is me! lol! :) 

Yep! I’ve been a major fan for almost two years now :) A younger fan, just 22 :] First saw him when I was just a wee little thing in ‘Wackiest Ship’… I was pretty much floored the moment I saw him lol!

Ahhh wall art?? I am so jealous! :) Thats too cool! :)

Keep the Ricky love going, my friend =) Take care ♥♥
