CLUE#1 HOT ROD GANG

A 1958 film starring John Ashley. The movie features an appearance by Gene Vincent.

CLUE#2 BE BOP A LULA

This is one of those songs that has a great story behind it that is probably not true. Vincent and his record company circulated the story that he wrote the song during a six-month stay in Portsmouth Naval Hospital, where he was recovering from a motorcycle accident. He played his guitar and came up with the tune inspired by the newspaper cartoon strip Little Lulu.

CLUE#3 1960 EDDIE

Gene Vincent was traveling alongside Eddie Cochran in the cab to London after what would prove to be Cochran’s final performance. the Ford Consul that was later estimated to have been traveling in excess of 60 mph through a dark and winding section of the two-lane A4 in the village of Chippenham. Gene Vincent would break a leg and walk with a limp for the rest of his life, but beyond that, the only serious injuries among the passengers were Eddie Cochran’s. Having been thrown from the vehicle when it smashed into a light post, Cochran sustained a serious head injury. He died at hospital in Bath in the early hours of April 17, 1960.
