Like almost no other contemporary, Vince Taylor embodies the early heyday of British rock 'n' roll. Borrowing from the sound and stage show of his great idol Gene Vincent, he began copying U.S. originals in the late 1950s. But he took the next step and recorded immortal classics like Brand New Cadilac and later Jet Black Machine.

Vince Taylor's myth is based on his wild, ecstatic live performances, which in those late fifties days must have eclipsed anything seen or heard up to that time. Like no other, he brought the energy and charisma of his idols like Elvis Presley or Gene Vincent to the stage. Dressed in leather gear, he raged across the stage, accompanied by his Playboys, the perfect backing band for him. They pushed him with their hard sound and brought the auditorium to a boil!
Some see him as a forefather of punk - but for sure, the rocker was one of the wildest guys of his time.
