Suzi Quatro's Pioneers of Rock - Gene Vincent

Suzi Quatro continues to profile acclaimed stars of the rock 'n' roll era and this week American musician Gene Vincent is in the spotlight, who died in 1971 aged only 36.

Unhinged and dangerous in black leather, yet softly spoken and polite, Gene was the ultimate wild rocker. His first hit - Be-bop-a-lula - is a classic slice of rock 'n' roll mayhem.
