Gene Vincent

Vincent Eugene Craddock (February 11, 1935 – October 12, 1971), known as Gene Vincent, was an American musician who helped pioneer the styles of rock and roll and rockabilly. His 1956 Top 10 hit with his Blue Caps, “Be-Bop-A-Lula,” is considered a significant early example of rockabilly. He is a member of the Rock and Roll and Rockabilly Halls of Fame.
