THIS CUTE LAD is none other than a young Gene Vincent! This rare picture was provided by Gene's three sisters, Tina, Donna and Evelyn. Thanks girls! The photo was recently featured in a contest offered by the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. Several fans correctly identified Gene and the grand prize winner will be drawn this week. The lucky person will receive a personal phone call from the original drummer of The Blue Caps, Dickie "Be-Bop" Harrell. Dickie will chat and answer question about Gene and The Caps for fifteen minutes.

GENE VINCENT RECEIVES ROCKABILLY HALL OF FAME'S FIRST INDUCTION CERTIFICATE. Although the Internet's Rockabilly Hall of Fame was created in March of 1997, Official Inductee Certificates are now being issued. The first one (#0001) was presented personally to Sarah "Tina" Craddock in honor of her brother Gene Vincent on Sunday, November 16, 1997 by Bob Timmers, curator of this web site.

DALLAS, August, 2000 - A David Dennard photo from the luncheon that he held in Dallas at Mi Cocina Mexican Restaurant in honor of Derek Henderson, who visited Dallas with his wife Sheila last weekend. Pictured are Dude Kahn (former "Dallas" Blue Caps drummer), Derek Henderson (author of "Gene Vincent: A Discography" and the liner notes for "The Lost Dallas Sessions" CD on Dragon Street Records), Ronnie Dawson (former Gene Vincent session man and live tour guitarist), and Juvey Gomez (another former "Dallas" Blue Cap who recorded with Gene and appeared in the Hollywood movie "Hot Rod Gang"). They're holding a vintage poster from one of Gene's Dallas appearances at the Sportatorium, circa 1958 or '59.
