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 Matthew and Gunnar Nelson have continued releasing new music since hitting it big with their 1990 debut, they've never been able to repeat their initial success. They have since released nine more albums, the most recent being May 2015's "Peace Out." However, the duo has since decided to stop using the "Nelson" band name, instead opting to tour and record music using their first names. They relocated to Nashville in the mid-1990s and even started working on a country album back then, but never completed it. But Music City has definitely rubbed off on them, as they told Rolling Stone in July 2015 that they are working on a "country-flavored Christmas album." They also perform as a separate tribute act to their father, called "Ricky Nelson Remembered Starring Matthew and Gunnar Nelson," and with a celebrity all-star rock band called Scrap Metal.
