Gene Vincent: Rocky Road Blues

Interesting clip of Gene Vincent performing in France. I have no idea what the announcer is saying at the beginning, any of our French visitors perhaps they can tell us what is going on. This is post accident Gene Vincent(the second accident which killed Eddie Cochrane). His leg was pretty busted up, and in another clip they show him coming on stage on crutches. I was listening to an interview with Gene in 1971, and said eventually he had to have it amputated. considering how painful it must have been for him to perform, that is an amazing film clip.
