AUDIO: Rick Nelson (1973)

John Tobler, Rock's Backpages Audio, 1973

A year after hitting with 'Garden Party', the former teenthrob talks about getting his new band together; his love of the pedal steel, and his steel player Tom Brumley; his new album Windfall; his against-type TV acting roles; the LA club scene and his favourite, the Palomino; leaving 'Hello Mary Lou' behind, and not being trapped by his past.
