    The electric guitar really hasn't gotten much better than that. (often worse.)

    As an 11 year old kid, this was my introduction to Gene Vincent. After hearing this I just knew I had to find out more about the guy and delved into his music. I was a weird kid. Punk rock and Gene Vincent.

    As an aside, have you ever seen anyone more cool looking than Mick Jones in this video? I normally think people who smoke cigarettes are idiots, but it doesn't get any more rock 'n roll than Mick Jones here.

    An interviewer once asked Paul Simon, what was the most profound
    thing ever said in RnR? He replied, " Be Bop A Lula, she's my baby... " :cool:
