Gunnar and Matthew Nelson, better known simply as Nelson, set a Guinness world record as the only family to have three generations of number one hits in the charts, with their late father Ricky Nelson considered one of rock 'n' roll's earliest superstars.
With plans of a tour on the horizon, Nelson have left themselves with a fistful of new material that would feel at home on the live stage, namely 'Back in the Day'. A song as a hallmark of nostalgia, this track pertains to a golden era of rock 'n' roll, deserving the open air atmosphere and the company of a summer's day beer.
Two and a half successful decades have passed and nothing here has diminished. This fantastic duo have adapted, coming out and, perhaps, going out swinging. If the aptly named Peace Out truly is to be Nelson's swan song, then the band are undoubtedly going out in style.
