Brother, You Were Always So Far Away

nelson.jpgSo, there's a rumor circulating on the Internet that the Nelson brothers are about to embark on a reunion tour. Matthew and Gunner Nelson are brothers, so were they ever separated?

Maybe the "reunion" means the original Nelson lineup, which included guitarists Steven McClintock and Cary Park, David Morgan on keyboards, and drummer Brian Burwell. There's a different Nelson line-up now, but you get the idea.

Nelson is best known for their number 1 single, "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection." The single was on the 1990 release After the Rain. All of Nelson's singles are available on 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Nelson.

According to the boys are on tour right now. This month, they're crooning on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. I don't know if this is cool or not. Glam readers, let me tell you that I've been on a cruise, and I've enjoyed the shows. I would say there wasn't a single performance, however, that was good enough to garner a number one single on the Billboard charts. Maybe my standards are too high.

Later this year, the Nelsons will stop in Iowa, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Oregon but don't expect a glam reunion. The Nelson's are now a country act. Whatever.
