I thought I'd post a video of Ricky Nelson singing his last hit "Garden Party" just because I really liked that song and because the song was an answer to fans who booed him off the stage at Madison Square Garden in 1971 for singing "Honky Tonk Woman" by the Stones.

Though some said the boos were not for Nelson, he left the stage and wrote "Garden Party". Note the references to some current pop culture icons such as Yoko Ono, Mr. Hughes and Bob Dylan. Mr. Hughes does not refer to Howard Hughes here, it is actually a reference to Beatle George Harrison who used to travel under that pseudonym.
