Sweet Gene Vincent

February 11, 2017 | Posted by Peter Jakobsen | Modern Music, MUSIC | 0 Comments |

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).
