TWANGY MID 20TH CENTURY WHITE DUDES: CUTE BOY EDITION
Hello Mary Lou (Goodbye Heart) by Ricky Nelson
The best part of his Wikipedia page:
“Nelson used marijuana early in his musical career, and became a regular user. He buried his stash in his yard. He supported marijuana’s legalization. He tried mescaline, was a regular cocaine user and carried the drug in an empty ginseng capsule.
During the Nelson divorce proceedings, he was accused by his wife’s attorney of using cocaine, quaaludes, and other drugs, and of having “a severe drug problem” encouraged by his managers, his entourage, and his groupies. The attorney noted that Nelson’s “personal manager” secured drugs for Nelson, wild parties took place in his home whether he was present or not, and his children, aware of his drug use, were in great physical danger from drugged persons entering and exiting the house at all hours.”
Get it, Ricky.
