Gene Vincent - Rock n Roll Singer (UK TV 1969)

Mon Dec 03, 2012 12:19 am

Interesting find on YT. Love him or hate him this 1969 UK special reflects a very sad demise for one of the originals and loyal Rock n Rollers. What do others think ?

He tried to shoot Gary Glitter in the 60's so you've gotta like him just for that.

Gary Glitter said this himself when he was on This Is Your Life.

I have found the link to it on youtube, the story starts at 10:44secs.

My girlfriend & I sailed on the MV Royal Daffodil from Gravesend for Calais on a Rock Across The Channel trip in '61.

Gene Vincent was supposed to join the ship at Southend, but he'd fallen downstairs & hurt his leg [we were told] & didn't show.

We had to settle for Tommy Bruce instead.

But we did get The Shadows, Duffy Power & a few I can't remember !
