Timeline

A Cornucopia of Songs

The Vince Gordon Sound

It is during a concert this year that Vince experiences an attack of stage fright. He manages against all odds to finish the concert. For a while he is unable to perform and rejects many requests for concert tours from around the world.

Instead, this becomes a time in his life, when he focuses entirely on writing, composing, and recording songs and on working on his special approach to the rockabilly genre that is later to become The Vince Gordon Rockabilly Sound.

 Vince was a cornucopia of songs. There was always a new song or tune from him. He could hardly pick up the guitar, without producing a new song, even when he was supposed to finish another one! He had so much music in him and so much to offer. The songs came from within, from his experiences, thoughts, and being. He had a very rich inner life. The inspiration came from deep within him. In fact, we didn’t really listen to much music from other artists.

Vince wrote a lot of very good numbers, and every song just had something in the tune – some notes that just hit you. He could always hit a tone, a riff that just hit something inside of you and lingered there.

Vince experimented with the tunes till he found the sound he was looking for. He was a perfectionist and could sit for over an hour listening to a certain tone. He mastered many instruments, and would teach himself new ones as needed.
