Nelson

Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, KB (29 September 1758 – 21 October 1805) was a British flag officer in the Royal Navy. He was noted for his inspirational leadership and superb grasp of strategy and unconventional tactics, which resulted in a number of decisive naval victories, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars. He was wounded several times in combat, losing one arm in the unsuccessful attempt to conquer Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the sight in one eye in Corsica. He was shot and killed during his final victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

Nelson was born into a moderately prosperous Norfolk family and joined the navy through the influence of his uncle, Maurice Suckling. He rose rapidly through the ranks and served with leading naval commanders of the period before obtaining his own command in 1778. He developed a reputation in the service through his personal valour and firm grasp of tactics but suffered periods of illness and unemployment after the end of the American War of Independence. The outbreak of the French Revolutionary Wars allowed Nelson to return to service, where he was particularly active in the Mediterranean. He fought in several minor engagements off Toulon and was important in the capture of Corsica and subsequent diplomatic duties with the Italian states. In 1797, he distinguished himself while in command of HMS Captain at the Battle of Cape St Vincent.

Nelson is Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, the twin sons of the '50s rocker and teen idol Rick Nelson.

During the early '80s, the brothers joined a heavy metal band called Strange Agents.

By the end of the decade, the group's name had changed to Nelson, as the twins were the only remaining members. With Matthew on bass and Gunnar on guitar, the duo released their self-titled debut in 1990.

Filled with polished, radio-friendly pop-metal, the album was a major hit in America, selling over a million copies and featuring the number one single "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection."

Nelson was silent for the next five years, releasing their second album, Because They Can, in the summer of 1995.

Following their association with Geffen, the brothers founded their own independent label, Stone Canyon Records, named in tribute to their father's band, where they released their next five albums.
