Vince Dies

Vince Gordon Dies on August 4th, 2016, 51 years of age.

He is given a beautiful funeral service in the idyllic village church, Tiset Kirke, near Aarhus, Denmark, in which he was once christened. Vince Gordon is buried under his given name of Lasse Rosdahl Larsen next to his mother.

I’ll be home

The music was Vince’s language. He wrote from the heart and stayed for ever true to his rockabilly values.

Vince Gordon vas a pioneer within the European rockabilly genre and was a trail blazer for many European rockabilly bands. He left his personal touch on international rockabilly with his unique style and managed to – despite his short life – write himself into international music history.

His passion for rockabilly stayed with him from the London trip in his youth to his death. He leaves behind seven amazing albums, a web guitar school, and more than 250 texts.

Throughout his childhood everybody around him just knew that Vince being so unusually gentle and compassionate possessed something quite unique. An exceptionally open heart. From which the music flowed.

The chors and the words came almost simultaneously one night, and it was recorded right away because I had my guitaramp set just right…it’s not a happy song but I think it’s a good song.

I’ll Be Home – Vince Gordon

It’s (G) been (G7) awhile
since (C) you were (G) mine
and love don’t (E7) seem to (A7) last my (D) dear
and (G) though it’s (G7) sad
(C) you’re the (G) one
the only one (D) that I (G) knew

Love is sad
and hearts get broke
but love is all we have
and though I’m wrong
to think of you
it’s all
I can do

If you should ask me why I’m here
I wish that you could see
all the time I spent alone
to get some peace of mind

solo

and when
they lay me in my grave
I hope the sun will shine on you
and may you be somewhere else
happy in your home

and when my soul has found it’s peace
I’ll rest my case and hurry home
to high above
at heavens gate
I’ll knock three times at the door

and when
I look down from high above
at all the things I knew
I won’t regret a thing at all
‘cos then
I’ll be home
