Presentation of Lonely Street Gene Vincent :
Welcome to Gene Vincent Fan Club.
It has been up and running since 11th february 2007, an anniversary date chosen as a symbol, even if the website is still a work in progress.
Gene s life is detailed by years, the site is growing every day.
You will find in the miscalleanous section the latest updates , it will show you the different topics and a list of the online material.
This website is mostly based upon documents given by people who met Gene, during his touring in France for exemple. Fans have kept over the years newspapers, authentic documents, stories, pictures, about these experiences shared with Gene, as well as my personal collection.
Many thanks to these fans for these accounts, making it available to other fans, who, like myself, were not there in Gene s lifetime.
And many thanks to those who did not know him, who did not have the chance to shine at his sides, but who are fans today! You guys are great!
It is thanks to them that all this material can be gathered. I hope you will learn more about the man, the artist, and his exceptional fate.

Happy Birthday Gene Vincent !
Tribute to Gene Vincent by Lee-Loo Feb 2007 (Video)
The main purpose of this website is to gather Gene Vincent fans (they are very numerous), or to make you know Gene better if you have not discovered him yet. All the available means are used to allow real exchanges, despite the distance (the website to learn more, the forum to allow fans to meet other people like themselves, and the blog to give the possibility for the young generation to listen to Gene Vincent.
An important part of this website is dedicated to the french translations of english documents about Gene Vincent. Special attention will also be brought to Gene s tours in France
The international fan club on Myspace was open on spring 2009.
These exchanges and discussions between fans in the middle which had until then remained closed to many seems today a necessary move.
I am lucky enough to have the possibility to build this website, and I hope that the discovery of new documents will make you as happy as I am : I have spent so much time looking for interesting material, and found only a few biographies that I could understand only with the help of a dictionnary.
Audio interviews will be translated in french as soon as possible. In the audio section of the blog (see the main navigation menu, at the top), you will also find some song lyrics, they will be added little by little.
If you register on our forum, you will find exclusive material and Ann Vinyl montages . You will be able to read the latest news about Gene Vincent, and we are also waiting for your impressions and questions.
If you want to submit new material that is not already online, a special sectionis available.
This fan club has been created, so that no occasion to organize meetings, events, or homages shall be missed
We are very pleased to have
Dickie Harrell from The Blue Caps as an honorary member,
his presence is truly a gift, many thanks to him!
