What ever happened to Ricky Nelson’s sons, Matthew and Gunnar? I enjoyed their music.

Nelson’s identical twins, 41, recently reformed their band Nelson, which had the No. 1 hits "Love and Affection," "After the Rain" and "More Than Ever." Also, the duo has been performing their tribute to their late father in the Ricky Nelson Remembered tour, complete with music, video and stories of their dad and grandparents Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. "It’s the show we do because we love to, not because we have to," says Matthew, who also fronts his own rock band, Red 37. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Yvette, while Gunnar, single, makes his home in Nashville, Tenn. One of Gunnar’s side projects is a group called Scrap Metal, which he describes as "all the lead singers from the biggest ’80s hair-metal bands."
