Fact #11246


Short story:

Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Vince Eager, The Viscounts and Tony Sheridan, play at The Gaumont, Bradford, UK. Annoyed by the audience response to his performance of Over The Rainbow, Gene Vincent leaves the stage part-way through his set and does not return.

Full article:

Gene Vincent : Four guys at the back had been heckling throughout the act. I didn't particularly mind during my fast numbers, but when they tried to ruin Over The Rainbow I could just not take it any more. It is one of the best things that I do and it has been going down well all over the country. I will never play at this place again.
