            That's YOU, Rick Nelson! Adored you as a 12 year old, but, hey, that was a low blow - FABIAN? Sad ending to a fabulous talent, but then there are your KIDS!

                        wow, what a blast from the past. I remember watching this episode. Doesn’t Ricky Nelson sing a slow version of “Dream Lover”? Absolutely classic to us of this era. Thank you so much for up loading this bit of history! If you look closely you can see Paul Schaefer on the drums.

                                              This is a better musical performance than SNL has had in the last 15 -20 years
