Gene Vincent (February 11, 1935 – October 12, 1971) was a rockabilly king and a really unlucky motorist. Coming from a generation that lived fast, died young and left a beautiful memory, he had a fresh face and voice. All but forgotten now, his songs never played, he still lives in many hearts: e.g. in Ian Dury’s 1977 song, Sweet Gene Vincent (see below).
