Gene Vincent 'You are My Sunshine'

I love this version and this video has some excellent images to go with it - think of them as stills for a future movie about Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent coming to the grimy world of Britain in 1960 - playing the Bristol Hippodrome - possibly following some Radstock Teddy Boys who have gone to see them and then bang! Death on the A4. They made a big impression over here - possibly helping to create the British beat boom - I actually know of two people who were patients in St Martin's hospital in Bath when they brought in a dead Eddie...a sad moment - the 50th anniversary of which will be in April this year so be prepared for a night in with Eddie and Gene.
