GENE VINCENT -19351971- : October-12, 2011-fanclub-MEETING-US-California
Hi All I have the great pleasure to come to you to make official the october 12th event for Gene Vincent ‘s 40th anniversary . The chosen place is … » Joe’s great american bar and grill » in Burbank , California It will be completely free of charge This place is well known in the Los Angeles area and more particularly in the San Fernando Valley to be a place of choice for rockabilly and americana music so it was a natural choice .I am very happy that we could make an agreement . We will start at 6:00 PM with food and drinks available for all . If we have enough people interested we can have a buffet at the cost of 10 US Dollars per person . If we go that route that would help the kitchen ( and us ) to avoid chaos in the orders and everything would be ready right away when we get on the premises. Their only request for those not eating is to have at least two drinks during the evening The owner is very excited to host our gathering and is trying to help in any respect to help us to get the best out of the evening . The first part of the event from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM , as I mentioned before will be about mingling with all the fans coming to honor Gene’s memory with good food and drinks . We will be playing recorded music from Gene’s entire recording career and beyond. During this period of 2 hours , everyone that will express the desire to speak about their experience with gene , their memories , or simply to express their love to him will register next to the stage preparing for the second half of the evening starting around 8:00 PM . We will have a full stage with microphone and sound system to accommodate . I received a few request for playing live music during the evening and I know that a lot of participants will be musicians . We initially didn’t want to have the evening as a single band show based event to keep the whole gathering about gene himself and the fans , but he most probably would love live music to be part of it , so decision has been made to let the show go on and unfold as it is meant to be . Everyone that will desire to perform can register , starting now , so we can schedule the evening in an organized manner . Let me know who you are , what you are planning to perform and if you have musicians/instruments with you or if you need some , as we will have just the basic sets of drums , guitar and bass available . All of that is taking life in a very organic way and what started as a simple get together and have a drink is transforming into a more pleasant memory making evening . With your help and ideas we’ll continue to make it evolve and we’ll gladly receive any suggestions from you all . It is your event after all which is meant for Gene Vincent , to be with him the best way we can in a sincere honest way . We might be able to accommodate last minute decisions to play or sing but no guarantee can be made that it would be possible depending on the demand , so register as early as possible , but know that you can always come from 6:00 PM to 8:00 Pm the very day and formulate your demand . It is going to be a very emotional moment all dedicated for gene , who left us 40 years ago to the day so although we want to be in a light joyfull mood , we a are asking that no merchandising business or else would be conducted using the event as a promotional support .We thank you in advance for respecting this rule . You can email me for requests or questions at » firstname.lastname@example.org » or through the fan club lonely street on Facebook . This event is happening because the enormous interest generated through Facebook in the international gene vincent fan club created by Lee-Loo She’s had , for the last five years , a life completely dedicated to gene and she accomplished the purest act of love by not counting her time , sweat , and frustrations sometime , all of that without any resources to unify all the fans under the same roof , so to speak . So hats off to her for what she did and I am proud to contribute to this effort to materialize even more on october 12th . To summarize please let me know if you want to have a buffet for the cost of 10 Dollars per person ( Joe’s place free ) and also if you would like to perform . Please avoid the apologies for not coming or not performing and let’s keep the mails about scheduling the event I look forward to talk to everyone that express the desire to do so and I’ll be available from this day until october 12th to make magic happen and be the coordinator of what you , as fans , want to make out of the experience .
Love to all
Chris Christian Bouyer
United States Delegate for the fan club Gene Vincent Lonely Street

I just wanted to write and say how brilliant I thought the web site on Gene is, it’s easily the best I have seen on the WWW and I look forward to the final 3 years being completed. It was good to see the English version added as I can now read it; that must have taken hours of work. I have read a number of books about Gene so I know a lot about him, but your collection of photos and information is amazing. The book called ‘’The Bitter End’’ is particularly interesting.
I have been a fan of Gene since around 1981 when I acquired a copy of his ‘’Sounds Like’’ album, and have most of his recordings and interviews now……… but not all! I was only 5 when he passed away so was too young to have seen him, but I know a few people who did. I have spoken to a few who saw him in March 1971 at the Magnet Club Chelmsford England. This is only 10 miles from my home. Apparently it was a scout hut nothing more than a wooden shed sitting in the middle of a muddy field!
There is a tribute night to Gene and Eddie on 24 January at the 100 Club London, this is exactly 50 years to the day from the first gig Eddie and Gene played in the UK. We all know what happened at the end of the tour. A terrible loss.
Good luck with the web site, I look forward to reading more updates
Je voulais juste écrire et dire à quel point je pensais brillant le site Web sur Gene, il est de loin le meilleur que j'ai vu sur le WWW et j'attends avec impatience les 3 dernières années en voie d'achèvement.
Il était bon de voir la version anglaise ajoutée, que je peux maintenant le lire, et doit avoir pris des heures de travail. J'ai lu un certain nombre de livres sur Gene donc je sais beaucoup de choses sur lui, mais votre collection de photos et d'information est étonnant. Le livre intitulé''The Bitter End''est particulièrement intéressant.
J'ai été un fan de Gene depuis environ 1981, lorsque j'ai acquis une copie de son''''Sounds Like album, et ont la plupart de ses enregistrements et des interviews maintenant ... ... ... mais pas toutes! Je n'avais que 5 quand il est parti , j'étais trop jeune pour avoir vu, mais je connais quelques personnes qui ont fait. J'ai parlé à quelques-uns qui l'ont vu en Mars 1971 en Angleterre Magnet Chelmsford Club. Ce n'est qu'à 10 miles de chez moi. Apparemment, il était un rien cabane scout plus d'un hangar en bois, assis au milieu d'un champ boueux!
(là l'expression je ne connais pas !)
Il ya une soirée hommage à Gene et Eddie, le 24 Janvier au London Club 100, c'est exactement 50 ans jour pour jour du premier concert Eddie et Gene joué dans le Royaume-Uni. Nous savons tous ce qui est arrivé à la fin de la tournée. Une perte terrible.
Bonne chance avec le site web, j'ai hâte de lire les mises à jour plus.
