Gene Vincent: Gene Vincent - Gene Rocks

Video von Gene Vincent - Gene Vincent - Gene Rocks

1-CD-Album Digipack with 40-page booklet, 30 tracks, playing time: 69:21.

Another outstanding release in Bear Family's 'Rocks' series, this one features thirty of the greatest rock 'n' roll recordings by the most diehard, dedicated rock 'n' roller of them all - Gene Vincent.

Includes all five US hits: Race With The Devil, Bluejean Bop, Lotta Lovin', Dance To The Bop and - one of the - greatest moments in the history of recorded sound - Be-Bop-A-Lula.

Cliff Gallup's complex, futuristic lead guitar influenced dozens of major stars including Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Dave Edmunds and Albert Lee.

Comprehensive notes by fan Ian Wallis, author of the best selling 'American Rock 'n' Roll: The UK Tours 1956-72' (Music Mentor Books).

There are heaps of Gene Vincent compilations. So many, you practically trip over them. This one is different and then some: It's simply the finest concentrated distillation of Gene Vincent's out 'n' out rock 'n' roll tracks you will ever hear.
These magnificent recordings have a febrile, lascivious quality unmatched by any of his competitors. They're nonsense songs about sex, hotrods, frenzied bopping and uncontrollable limbs in red-blue jeans, always epitomizing the hub-cab stealing ne'erdo-well of a dozen high-school exploitation movies.

There was no singer quite like Gene Vincent. His lean, mean, high-pitched vocals, laced with screams and yelps on a cushion of fluttery echo, provided the blueprint for every late-blooming rockabilly band and beat-group singer, John Lennon included. And his guitarists were equally radical: Cliff Gallup, the Blue Caps spark-plug, became a huge influence on six-string stuntmen the world over.

Gene Vincent was a strange, self-destructive mess of a man whose road was always rocky. 

Gene Vincent drank to excess, limped with a rotting leg, fathered the rock 'n' roll life style and died at 36. But no one has made better rock 'n' roll music before or since.

Artist description "Vincent, Gene"

Gene Vincent

 

Geboren als Vincent Eugene Craddock am 11.2.1935 in Munden Point, Norfolk, im US-Staat Virginia. Mit 15 machte er sich älter, weil er zur Armee wollte und wurde im Korea-Krieg eingesetzt. Bei einem Motorradunfall wurde er 1953 so schwer verletzt, dass er für den Rest seines Lebens immer gehbehindert ist.

Ein Jahr später wurde Gene Vincent deswegen aus der Armee entlassen. Für die nächsten 2 Jahre wirkte er bei verschiedenen lokalen Rundfunksendungen mit. 1956 bekam er seine große Chance, als er den Discjockey Sheriff Tex Davis kennenlernte. Gemeinsam komponierten sie den Song „Be-Bop-A-Lula ". Im August desselben Jahres war die Platte in der ganzen Welt in den Hitparaden. „Race with the Devil ", „Blue-Jean-Bop " und „Jumps Giggles and Shouts " waren seine großen Hits. Außerdem drehte er 2 Filme: „The Girl can 't help it” (1957 mit Little Richard) und „Hot Rod Gang " (1959).

1960 kam Gene Vincent nach England auf Tournee mit seinem Freund Eddie Cochran. Am 17.4.1960 fuhren beide im Taxi zum Flughafen und verunglückten. Eddie Cochran starb dabei, Gene Vincent wurde schwer verletzt ins Krankenhaus eingeliefert. Von diesen Verletzungen hat sich Gene Vincent nie mehr richtig erholt. Zeitweise wurde sogar befürchtet, dass sein linkes Bein amputiert werden müsse. Im Oktober 1971 starb er, ist heute aber immer noch unvergessen. Erst 1974 wurde noch eine Single veröffentlicht: „Roll over Beethoven ".
