Gene Vincent in UK video

I was hoping to find Ty in this, but apparently he's using the British guys.

I remember seeing that film a while ago, good to see it again. It's a little sad though, but a good glimpse into the world and character of Gene Vincent at that time. He had a lot of support here with really dedicated fans. The backing band was the Wild Angels, cool band. Nice to hear the Gretsch around 28;50 as the guitarist adjusts his tape echo...probably a Watkins Copycat

Thanks for posting this. I love the live footage at the end. Gene and the band sound incendiary, almost Sonics-like. Sad to see how winded he was though, and to think he was only 34 years old with just 2 years left.
