David Nelson

David Nelson (June 12, 1943) is an American guitarist and musician. Although he started his musical career playing folk and bluegrass music (most notably as a member of The Wildwood Boys with Jerry Garcia) Nelson is probably best known as one of the original members of psychedelic country rock band the New Riders of the Purple Sage. After playing lead guitar with the New Riders from the late sixties until the early 1980s, Nelson left the band to pursue other musical opportunities which included a stint on Broadway as a member of the legendary Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band and some time touring with Al Rapone and the Zydeco Express.
