PostSubject: Gene's wives - les epouses de Gene - intervention de sherri   17.06.09 21:34

Hi Lee-Loo

My father was never married to Darlene and as for Jackie, it was considered a bigamous marriage within UK law, as when he and Jackie were married, he remained married to my mother until she filed and obtained her divorce in 1970. Whilst he obtained a quickie Mexican divorce, this was not recognised under British law and it remains questionable as to whether it was recognised under Californian State law, this being just one of the many grounds under which I filed my lawsuit against Jackie in 2002 and won!!!


Hope that helps to set the record straight, as there seem to be many misconceptions about my father's personal life that have been borne out of years of rumour and speculation and now termed as fact.


As ever,


Sherri :-)

Salut Lee-Loo


Mon père n'a jamais été marié à Darlene et a Jackie, il a été considéré comme un mariage bigame dans le droit britannique, que lorsque lui et Jackie sont mariés, il est resté marié avec ma mère jusqu'à ce qu'elle a déposé et obtenu son divorce en 1970. Si il a obtenu un divorce quickie mexicaine, ce n'était pas reconnu en vertu du droit britannique, et il reste douteux de savoir si elle a été reconnue en vertu de la législation de l'État de Californie, ce qui est juste un des nombreux motifs en vertu de laquelle j'ai déposé mon procès contre Jackie en 2002 et a remporté !


Espoir qui aide à mettre les choses au clair, comme il semble y avoir beaucoup d'idées fausses au sujet de mon père, la vie personnelle qui ont été supportés par des années de rumeurs et de spéculations, et maintenant appelée fait.


Comme toujours,


Sherri :-)


------------

Merci pour les infos SherriAnn, je sais que tu lis le francais

La dernière epouse legitime de Gene reste tout de meme Jackie, puisqu'il n'avait pas divorcé d'elle quand il nous a quitté
(mariage il a eu et apparament valide, puisque c'est a elle que l'on doit s'adresser pour toutes choses concernant la tombe de Gene ou succession, en Californie ou Gene repose)
Jackie est donc considérée derniere epouse officielle de Gene et ce meme ou jour de son deces
Par contre pour Darlene, merci de m'avoir confirmé qu'il n'avait jamais été marié a elle bien qu'il ai eu 2 enfants avec elle (Gene Jr et Melody)

la reponse de Tina a Sherri
Wrong Gene did marry Darlene. In CA we recognize his marriage to Jackie. Gene was divorcing Jackie at his time of death.
Tina


alors je comprends : erreur, Gene a marié Darlene et En Californie nous reconaissons le mariage avec Jackie- Gene divorcait de Jackie au moment de son deces

(donc j'en deduis que procedure non achevée donc annulée? Jackie reste sa derniere epouse legitime)



THANKS FOR INFORMATIONS TINA

Je pense oui que Gene c marié a Darlene, il a meme adopté l'enfant qu'elle avait eu avant (debbie)
Tina devait je pense y etre presente a ce mariage, puisque fait aux etats unis et Tina est la soeur de Gene - en 1958 Tina avait 10 ans

Je ne comprends pas pourkoi sherri ann (fille de margie) conteste le mariage avec Darlene scratch vois pas trop le but "precis"- Darlene, bien anterieur a la rencontre de Gene avec Margie, sa mere...


Le pourkoi du divorce avec ruth ann, Tina me l'avait expliqué, situation trop difficile a gerer avec la carriere de Gene qui explosait et son rythme de vie aussi en 56
divorce a l'amiable

-------------------

Certains pensent peut etre ces sujets tres perso dans la vie de Gene, mais ça fait partie de la vie de Gene ! et son fan club retrace la vie de Gene, dans son ensemble, pas que les n° de vinyles Capitol ou les lieux de concert

-------------------



Mai 1958 : Gene se marie avec Darlene Hicks, qui a déjà une petite fille, Debbie.







Darlene











Gene, Darlene , Debbie (enfant d'une précédente union de Darlene)

et parents de Darlene














Novembre 1958 : sorties de "Say Mama" / "Be Bop Boogie Boy" (Capitol F4105US) et de l'album " A Gene Vincent Record Date" (Capitol T1059US) : Five Feet Of Lovin" / The Wayward Wind" / Somebody Help Me / Keep It A Secret / Hey, Good Lookin' / Git It / Teennage Partner / Peace Of Mind / Look What You Gone And Don't To Me / Summertime / I Can't Help It / I love You (également disponible sous la forme de trois EP's)












Depuis leur tournée en Australie, Gene et Eddie Cochran sont devenus de très bons amis. Eddie Cochran vient avec plaisir donner "un coup de main" à Peek et Facenda pour les choeurs du 4eme album "Record Date". Il apporte ses idées et sa superbe voix grave que l'on remarque, par exemple, dans "Git It" ou Peace Of Mind" entre autres.

Qui sont les gens sur cette photo?
Il me semble que la dame à gauche de GENE ressemble à la mère d' EDDIE,mais GENE a dit dans une interwiew ,que les parents d'EDDIE ne l'avais jamais appelé aprés l'accident ( sous entendu il ne les avais pas vu ) cette photo aurait alors étè prise avant la tournée anglaise ?

Depuis leur tournée en Australie, Gene et Eddie Cochran sont devenus de très bons amis

tournée australie 1957



et la serie de photo avec darlene date de 58


Donc la meme epoque je pense

Effectivement Gene n'a plus eu de contact avec la famille d'Eddie apres l'accident
j'en cherche encore les raisons
20 avril 1960 : après une convalescence de trois jours, Gene, avec Sharon, accompagnés du corps d'Eddie, rentrent aux USA pour un séjour familial dans l'Etat de Washington.
"Gene était vraiment mal" confia Darlene "Lui et Eddie étaient très proches. Il parlait beaucoup d' Eddie et a envoyé des fleurs aux funérailles, mais n'y est pas allé car il était incapable de le supporter".
----------
c dans quell interview que Gene parle de ça crazytime ? ou il parle de ses relations coupées avec la famille d'Eddie
Je sais qu'on en a discuté ici, mais je ne sais plus ou

Gene Vincent's Daughter Files Lawsuit Over Father's Estate
Yahoo! Music, Sep 5, 2002 10:00 am PDT

(9/5/02, 10 a.m. ET) -- The heirs of late rockabilly pioneer Gene Vincent could soon be facing off in court. Vincent's British-born daughter Sherri Vincent Murray filed a lawsuit Friday (August 30) against her father's ex-wife Jacqueline Vincent Craddock, her half-sister Melody Jean Vincent Craddock, and her half-brother Vincent Eugene Craddock, claiming fraud and concealment, copyright infringement, accounting, declaratory relief, and constructive trust, all regarding the administration of the Gene Vincent estate and musical legacy.
Murray's mother, Margaret Ann Craddock, married Vincent (born Eugene Vincent Craddock) in January 1963, and gave birth to Murray in May of that same year. Vincent filed for a Mexican divorce in 1965 that was not recognized by British courts. Craddock later filed for divorce in 1970.
Murray's lawsuit names Vincent's second wife, Jacqueline Craddock, also known as "Jacqueline Frisco," who toured with Vincent in 1964, had an affair with the singer, and then married him.
Also named in the lawsuit are Murray's half-sister, Melody Jean Vincent Craddock and half-brother Vincent E. Craddock, the offspring of Gene Vincent and Darlene Tidwell, born prior to Murray. The lawsuit claims Tidwell and the rockabilly star never married.
The suit states that Gene Vincent never paid child support to Murray's mother and upon his death, Murray was not named as one of his heirs. It also states that Jacqueline Craddock claimed Vincent died penniless and without copyrights and obtainable royalties. However, copyrights were then renewed under the names of all three defendants in the lawsuit.
Murray is seeking a one-quarter interest in all musical composition and sound recordings as well as damages and compensation to be determined by a court of law. She has also demanded a trial by jury.
Gene Vincent's biggest hit was "Be Bop A-Lula," in 1956. Throughout the 1950s, he toured with his band the Blue Caps, made television appearances, and also performed in Hollywood films including The Girl Can't Help It and Hot Rod Gang. Vincent was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1998.

dans quell interview que Gene parle de ça crazytime ? ou il parle de ses relations coupées avec la famille d'Eddie
Je sais qu'on en a discuté ici, mais je ne sais plus ou
DANS 2 INTERWIEW / Interwiew parue dans juke box + Interwiew en anglais, je crois que c'est la mème interwiew , mais un peu écourtée dans sa version anglaise.
Par contre je n'ai jamais lu ni entendu dire que GENE avait une bague qui appartenait à EDDIE , si tu peut retrouver l'origine de cette information ce serait intéressant .
First published in International Times, March 1971

Some 13 years ago, Gene Vincent (né Vincent Gene Craddock) had the nation’s number-one song in a rockin’ ditty called "Be Bop-A-Lula" (it sold three million copies). It, along with Elvis’s "Hound Dog", Carl Perkins’ "Blue Suede Shoes" and Bill Haley’s "See You Later, Alligator" more-or-less spearheaded the 1956 American "rock revolution".
Presley, Perkins and Haley have all been heard from recently; not so with Vincent. At least, not in America. Since the success of "Be Bop-A-Lula", Vincent has spent the majority of his time in England, doing gigs and continually cutting records (which, somehow, have never made it over here).
"Carl Perkins was the first rock and roll singer. Even Elvis, you ask him, will admit it. If you ask Bill Haley he’ll admit it as well.
WHEN DID CARL PERKINS IN TURN INSPIRE YOU?
Well, Carl Perkins was down South … we were all down South, actually. Carl Perkins, me, Elvis Presley, Bill Haley was up north. Haley was into saxophones and horns and things like that. When it all started out, they called it rockabilly … I’ve got some Sun Records from that time here.


SO YOU STARTED OUT IN THOSE DAYS WITH JERRY LEE LEWIS AND PERKINS AND …

No, Perkins started first. Perkins was on his way to do the Ed Sullivan show when he hit a tractor and wrecked his back. So they said to themselves: who can we get to take his place? Well, they said that
there was this boy called Elvis Presley and there’s one called Gene
Vincent. But I was in the hospital at that time and Presley did it. On the Ed Sullivan Show.
I GUESS YOU MUST HAVE THOUGH ABOUT WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF YOU HAD DONE THE SULLIVAN SHOW INSTEAD OF PRESLEY.
No, not really. I’m a singer. Listen, I never meant to make money. I never wanted it. I’m a singer, man. When I put out a record called "Be Bop-A-Lula", my only thought was to just make a living singing. But all of a sudden, I was getting $1500 a night. And you take a 19-year old boy and put him in those circumstances … I had a Cadillac and all. It was a bad scene. It shouldn’t have happened on that first record.


AFTER "BE BOP-A-LULA" DID THE COMPANY PUT PRESSURE ON YOU TO COME UP WITH ANOTHER QUICK HIT? TO MAKE THEM MORE MONEY?

Hey, everybody was making money ‘cept me. When I was 28, I got a letter from the Government saying I was a millionaire. I wish to hell they would have told somebody else about it … like me. I never knew about it. I never had that money. In fact, I’ve still got about 10 checks that were signed by my manager overseas … $10,000 or so. But I don’t care. I just don’t care. I know it sounds silly. But … look, let them take what they want. All I want to do is be myself and make a decent living. Not a lot of money, mind you. I already own a lot of property, I own a 42-foot yacht in bloody Hermosa Beach and all that jazz. But I just want to be me!


"BE BOP-A-LULA" MADE IT IN 1956. WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU AFTER THAT? DID YOU STILL TOUR?

Oh, yeah … sure. Before I went to England in 1960, I played in Europe. I went to Hamburg and met a group there. I was very impressed with them. We met and talked a lot … that was at the Star Club … They were really good. Now they’re called John Lennon and The Beatles. They didn’t have a record out or nothing. God, I could have picked them up so cheaply … which was so foolish of me. But, like I said, I’m a singer, not a bloody business man.


WHAT MADE YOU LEAVE THE US TO SETTLE IN ENGLAND?

The same thing that’s making me leave now.


YOU MEAN ALL THE OTHER FRUSTRATIONS THAT GO ALONG WITH SINGING?

No … you want to know the truth? Well, my brother-in-law is Mickey Most. I’m married to his wife’s sister … which is a shame. I brought my wife over here … my ex-wife, shall we say, and she brought her parents from South Africa, her sister, her bloody sister from Oregon and about 15 million other people – I can’t keep up with them all. And Mickey Most laughs. I know why he laughs now. That bloody bastard.


WHAT DO YOU ATTRIBUTE THAT TO? IS IT BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T PROGRESSED TO THE PSYCHEDELIC STAGE?

Oh, what a charge you are. What is all this "progressed past" jazz? Listen, you play me one record … right there, there’s a whole bunch of them … you play me one record that isn’t rock and roll. Now they might play in minor chords, but it’s all rock. Pure and simple rock and roll. And you’re not going to lose it.
People tell me I’m making a comeback. A comeback to what? What do you want me to comeback to? Working 350 days out of 365. No thank you. I’m too old for that now … I’m 33 already.


BUT YOU ARE MAKING A COMEBACK TO RECORDING … WITH AN AMERICAN PRODUCT.

Right, but I’ve been recording steady for the past 16 years.


THEN YOU JUST WANT TO DO GIGS, PERIOD.

Right. I’d sing for you, right now. But as far as all these managers and everything … Listen, let me tell you something. When I entered music, music was a fantastic thing. It was a competition; we all competed with each other. But since then, music has become a business … it’s more of a competition among businessmen. You stuff things down people’s throats, which they don’t like, and then you say: "Why is rock and roll coming back?" Well, rock and roll is coming back because people want the original … and, they’re going to have it. The people want it! They’re not businessmen or anywhing … they’re just people who enjoy the music. Here, I’m going to tell you something which you probably don’t know about. You’ve heard about this payola stuff that happened back in ’58? Well, they do the same thing now. All they do is give you a Swiss number, a Swiss bank account number. You play the record and you pick up $300 in Swiss money.


YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT ENGLAND?

I’m talking about here. The USA.


WHEN "BE BOP-A-LULA" CAME OUT AND EVERYBODY STARTED COMPARING IT – AND YOU – TO PRESLEY, WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION?

It’s quite a funny story. I was in the Naval Hospital, actually I was crippled up; I just had a hit [wound] in Korea. My mother said to me: "Son, why don’t you enter this contest?" I said, what bloody contest, what are you talking about? She said, why don’t you record something. So I recorded a thing that I wrote. I come in dead drunk and stumbled over the bed. And me and Don Graves were looking at this bloody book; it was called "Little Lulu". And I said, "Hell, man, it’s bebopalulu." And he said, "Yeah, man, swinging." And we wrote this song. And some man came to hear it … named Sheriff Tex Davis, and he bought the song from Donald Graves for $25, $25 dollars! So I recorded the song and told all my friends that I was going to get a Cadillac; cause all rock and roll singers had Cadillacs.
So "Be Bop-A-Lula" came out and for three weeks nothing happened. Then some man in Baltimore started playing it and that bloody thing hit. It went to number 1 in every bloody place you went. But I didn’t know how to handle a hit. I was only a child … a boy.
I went to Nashville. I walked in the door of the Prince Albert Hotel and had on a pink suit with a wine-coloured shirt. See, they hated me right from the start, cause I had the number one record in town. But I didn’t know that at the time. So I went to this big disk-jockeys’ convention in town and a person was playing there by the name of Bill Monroe. He had a bluegrass band. And everybody was sitting there. Then Faron Young got up and said: "There’s this fella in town; one of these rock and roll people who’s only going to last a year, if he lasts that long. But by the way he sings, he won’t." And then he said: "And there sits the boy. He might sing in a minute. His name is Gene Vincent." And man, I snuck out that door … crawled out of there. He brought me down so bad! So I went back to the hotel and there was this fella sitting there in the lobby who came up to me and said, "Excuse me, can I get your autograph?" And I said, "Haven’t I seen you someplace before?" And he said, "Yeah, my name’s Buddy Holly." He had out a record then called "Blue Days, Black Nights". It was a fabulous record.
It’s like I say. We used to all sit around … me and Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins and we’d talk about things. If one of us had a hit, we’d say: "That’s fabulous. It’s a damn good song." But now, the people that I meet are so damn big headed … it’s not music any more, it’s business. But now … I’ve met Jim Morrison of the Doors … a fantastic person. Really a nice guy, and he takes me back to the people I knew in the old days. Listen, a star is not a star. We never considered ourselves that. I’m always pushing, man, to get something better. And that’s the same with Jim and fellas like John Sebastian.


HOW ABOUT THE EDDIE COCHRAN ACCIDENT? YOU WERE IN THE CAR WITH HIM?

Yeah, I picked him up and carried him 40 feet.


HOW’D THE ACCIDENT HAPPEN?

Well, people aren’t going to like this either, but … He had a girlfriend called Sharon Sheeley. She said she was engaged to him, which was the biggest goddamned lie I’d ever heard in my whole life. I never heard such a bunch of shit in my life. Anyway, we were in England on our way to London that night and Eddie said to me: "Gene, instead of getting on the train and fightin’ the whole way back, going with Sharon, why don’t we just drive?" So we hired a car. Usually I got in first, then it was Eddie and her. But this one night, I don’t know what happened, but she got in first, then Eddie and me. Eddie was killed cause he was in the middle. Now there’s only one way he could have been killed. That was throwing himself across her body. It’s the only way! We’ve tried to figure it out. Nobody’s really told the truth! If she’d tell the truth for a change. That man was a good cat, man, and he’s dead.
I have a picture here, let me show you. This was made from a small picture I’ve got. I won’t give it to nobody because it’s mine. I treasure it as a treasured possession. Now see the crosses there? [Showed me a photo of Cochran with several white cross-designs scattered above Cochran’s head and in his hair.] This was taken a day before he died. See, one of those crosses is right in his half … taken a day before he died. God … explain that! Can you explain the picture? Where’d the crosses come from? As far as I knew, they weren’t there before. It’s incredible …


DID YOU HIT ANOTHER CAR?

No … it was a chauffeur-driven car and he hit a lamppost going about 80. Eddie went out the door … skidded 250 yards on the back of his head. I was thrown on the grass and had my whole left side broken up. I picked Eddie up and carried him. When we got to the hospital I told the doc: "I’ll give you a million dollars if you can save his life." He said he was dying. I said "He can’t die." He said, "Well, he is." I said "He’s not." I guess I tried to help him too much. I had a doctor flown in by helicopter … a brain surgeon. He operated … then Eddie died. 272 concussions across the back of his head.
You know, his mother and father never even called me. Never even talked to me. But that man was like my brother. I knew him like nobody else did. They have never even called! Eddie told me things, whispering before he died, that he wanted to tell them. Have they called and asked me? No … I’d gladly tell them. It’s been almost eight years. Why don’t they ask me?
I’ll tell you why they don’t. We had a man … we were working almost eight months on the road. We had a man called Norm Riley. Now we had picked up almost ¼ of a million dollars on our tours … me and Eddie … and we were leaving for Bristol that night. And Riley he … now, now do you go about stealing ¼ of a million dollars? Can I tell you how? He booked himself into a mental hospital, got out and collected the money and booked himself back in. Now you can’t touch him. Who are you going to get? The police?


HOW MUCH MONEY HAVE YOU GONE THROUGH SINCE "BE BOP- A- LULA"?

Oh, at least 3 million dollars. Now what have I got? It’s amazing.
HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT GOING INTO ANOTHER BUSINESS?
Into what? No, man … I’m a singer. A bloody singer! It’s my living … my life.

Et justement, là c'est le contraire Manu, c'est Tina qui affirme et veut que Gene et Darlene aient été mariés

@crazytime
bizarre aussi que Gene soutienne qu'Eddie et sa fiancée ne l'etaient pas du tout scratch Et cette histoire de fric pris ce soir là par un autre ? ....
Ce sont pourtant là directement les "soit disant" mots de Gene Vincent ? Va savoir
