A warm 1951 Club welcome to the remarkable and highly talented singer-songwriter Vince Bell.
Vince was born in Texas and spent the Seventies working the national coffeehouse circuit and he was very much of a rising star. But in December 1982, whilst driving home from a recording studio, he was broadsided by a drunk driver and suffered severe multiple injuries. Awakening from a coma a month later, Bell embarked on a courageous, decade-long journey to reclaim his identity, his music, and his career. Vince has released a number of albums over the years including Phoenix (1994), Texas Plates (1999), Live in Texas (2001), Recado (2007) and One Man’s Music (2009). The latter album, One Man’s Music is also the title of his inspirational autobiography and one-man performance piece. To find out more about Vince and his work you can visit his website by following this link. Also … here is a link via YouTube to a fascinating insight into Vince … One Man’s Music.
- The 1951 Club is intended to be a celebration of all-things associated with the year 1951. Someone asked me why I did a blog about the year of my birth. Simple. It’s easier than doing one about the year of my death.
