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?

While the band released four follow-up records, it never recaptured the success it saw with its 1994 debut "Cracked Rear View." With the band currently on indefinite hiatus, Rucker has found a second act as a country singer. He first released a solo R&B album in 2002, but later signed to Capitol Records Nashville and released his first country album in 2008. His first single off that album, "Don't Think I Don't Think About It," made him the first black artist to chart a No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs charts since Charley Pride in 1983. He has since recorded the No. 1 country hits "It Won't Be Like This for Long," "Alright," "Come Back Song," "This" and "Wagon Wheel," the last a Grammy-winner off his third country album, 2013's "True Believers." His most recent album, "Southern Style," was released on March 31, 2015.
