It was 25 years ago Tuesday that the twin sons of '50s teen idol Ricky Nelson hit No. 1 with their debut single, "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection." But what are Matthew and Gunnar up to today and do they still have that killer long blond hair?

It may seem like just yesterday, but it was actually 25 years ago that you were rockin' out to Nelson, the rock band founded by the identical twin sons of the late teen idol Ricky Nelson. Back in 1990, Nelson's biggest hit, "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection," was everywhere, as evidenced by it hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on Sept. 29, 1990. What you may not recall is the long blond maned Matthew and Gunnar Nelson had several more hit singles from their debut album "After the Rain," including the title track, which hit No. 6, and "More Than Ever" and "Only Time Will Tell," which peaked at No. 14 and No. 28, respectively.
