Sweet Gene Vincent

by

Ian Dury & the Blockheads



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

"Sweet Gene Vincent" is a straight tribute song; Ian Dury was a massive fan of the American rock n' roller with whom he shared a disability. Dury was crippled by childhood polio; Vincent smashed his left leg in a 1955 motor accident. (Check out a photo of Gene Vincent.)
According to Dury's biographer Richard Balls, the single was release November 25, 1977 backed by "You're More Than Fair", but though the music press liked it, the public didn't, and it failed to chart. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England, for above 2)
