I’m heading back to the fifties and a bit of leather-clad Rock ‘n’ Roll. Gene Vincent along with the Blue Caps was one of the originals. He was wild. His antics on tour were renowned but it was the same sad story of alcohol gaining the upper hand.
Whenever I think of Gene these days I always think of Ian Dury’s Sweet Gene Vincent – he really captured him in a piece of poetry.
I love that early Gene Vincent and will be playing it this afternoon – real loud!!
