This may show up from someone else in the Current Events forum, but it seems appropriate here:

David Nelson, older brother of the late Rick Nelson, famed for his childhood TV role in the long-running Nelson family saga, has died, at age 74:

He became less of an icon than his sexy younger brother, who got into music as the series neared its end, and continued in that medium until his death in a plane crash some years ago. There were completely unfounded allegations of drug use leading to that crash, which David fought for some years, successfully proving that the allegations were crap. I saw him interviewed about that issue. He was a smart guy, and deserves admiration for just being a fine person. His passing saddens me considerably.

Aw, that is sad. I hadn't yet heard the news. Thanks.

Maryn, who remembers David well

I can't imagine him being 74. I also can't imagine that Rick Nelson's been dead for 25 years. Some of you people must be getting old. I'm sure it's not me.

RIP, David.
