Ken Nelson dead at 96
When Legends Gather # 343

Sherrif Tex Davis, Ken Nelson and Gene Vincent.

My thanks to Testify for sending me this image, drawing my attention to who he was and that he passed away on Sunday.

Read the obituary from The Tennessean here.

Sad loss for sure, I have a lot of records with the Ken Nelson touch (Speedy West comes to mind, as well as Gene, Merle and Buck, of course).

There's a more indepth piece on him (not an obit) worth reading here, with some choice photos as well.

Pivotal figure in American culture.
