Piper "Vincent" Craddock
Gene Vincent's Little Sister

Piper got in touch with me due to an interest in tracing her Scottish roots.  She told me that her big brother "Gene Vincent" of "be bop a lula" fame took time to visit Scotland when he came over to tour the U.K. and very much enjoyed his time in Scotland.

As a result of various emails with Piper we thought it might be fun to make up this page with a variety of wee bits of information on herself and her brother:-

  • Piper talks about Gene Vincent
    Here Piper tells us a bit about Gene including what he thought of his visit to Scotland and including a picture of Gene with John Lennon & Paul McCartney of the Beatles.
  • Bloodrush 2001
    Piper tells us about her Bloodrush 2001 show and copies us into it's reviews.
  • Photo Gallery
    Here you get to see some of Piper's pictures.
  • The Music
    Wonders of technology!  Piper recorded some tracks and sent over a cassette of them which we recorded onto the PC for you to listen to.
  • Fan Letters
    Piper shares a few of her Fan letters with us.
  • Gene Vincent
    Piper offered us some material on Gene Vincent so we put together a web page for him as well.

(All pictures, text and audio tracks on this page are the copyright of Piper Vincent [with the exception of  the picture of Gene and
the Beatles]  who has kindly given Electric Scotland permission to use this material on our site).

Piper Vincent




The stadium became darkened... the immense stage was filled with what appeared to be a blueblack eerie smoke or fog.... the massive theatre screen at the back of the stage was lit up with a blank white canvas.... spotlights from behind..... everything being played out in slow motion... a small thin silhouette of a finely shaped woman appeared rising slowly from beneath.. on a circular stage... as the  fog like smoke thickened.... a roar of African like drums began to beat a constant pounding ...back up singers shouted out in an almost angelic harmony of  ''BANG BANG BANG'' from the back of the stadium and from the sides of the stadium and from above the stadium comes a shrill of distant thunder and lightening... and a sound of pouring rushing rain... a howling wind blowing over the entire crowd seems to somehow direct its path toward the silhouette... the smoke clears the silhouette is standing  with arms raised  in the air in a victory like stance the silhouette of her waist length hair....  flying on the wings of the wind uncontrollably... and frantic... the silhouette drops suddenly to the floor..... a bewildering hush and silence comes over the musicians and stage and fills the air..... there is a gasp heard from among the crowd then... appearing on the giant theater screen is film of GENE VINCENT appearing in a black leather suit holding on to a microphone stand he starts singing '''well bop a lula'''... all of a sudden the silhouette on the floor rises and a spotlight shines on  the silhouette... IT'S PIPER .!!!. and she and Gene together sing BE BOP A LULA...the fans go dramatic as any broadway show PIPER VINCENT'S BLOODRUSH show grabs you from the very beginning and DOESN'T LET GO !!!!!!
