Nelson

Nelson is a sibling act founded by Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, the twin sons of 1950s teen idol Rick Nelson. During the early '80s, the brothers joined a heavy metal band called Strange Agents. By the end of the decade, however, the group's name had changed to Nelson, as the twins were the only remaining members. With Matthew on bass, Gunnar on guitar, and a handful of music vets onboard (including guitarist Brett Garsed and former Vinnie Vincent Invasion drummer Bobby Rock), Nelson made its debut in 1990 with the release of After the Rain. Filled with polished, radio-friendly pop-metal, the album was a major hit in America, where it sold over a million copies and charted a number one single with "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection." Three additional singles cracked the Top 40.

Despite the success of Nelson's debut, Geffen Records balked at the band's intended follow-up. Entitled Imaginator, the proposed album was heavier than its predecessor and sported a conceptual theme. Geffen refused to release the record and sent the brothers back to the drawing board, resulting in a five-year hiatus between the release of After the Rain and the appearance of the band's sophomore effort, Because They Can. Musical tastes has changed considerably during that period, and the album fared poorly, causing Geffen to drop the band from its roster. Matthew and Gunnar responded by founding their own independent label, Stone Canyon Records, which they named in tribute to their father's band. They then released Imaginator in 1996, followed by four additional albums. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Great band! @kartmantom, they aren't garbage!

I used to watch the ozzie and harriet show that had their father in it so I was really excited when I first learned of these guys. I didnt know they had more than one album let alone still performing thats so great.
I just saw them 3 nights ago and they still ROCK! The show is fabulous, they really make the audience feel like a part of the show!!

They actually have a few more albums. They are currently working on a tribute show to their father and have come out with a cover album of some of his bigger hits including a song they wrote recently.
They were great

Like many "hair band" musicians, it’s a shame that Nelson didn't receive the credit they were due as true artists!
