Johnny Meeks & Blue Caps - Tribute To Blue Cap Man

Johnny Meeks & Blue Caps - Tribute To Blue Cap Man

Meeks might have remained in country music but for the troubles of a West Coast-based rock & roll outfit. Gene Vincent's band, the Blue Caps, suddenly found itself without a lead guitarist late in 1956, when Cliff Gallup exited the lineup for the second time. the Blue Caps went through a period of inactivity, owing to a dispute with Vincent's management, but in early 1957 they needed a new lead guitarist. It was the band's rhythm guitarist, Paul Peek, who had played pedal steel guitar in the Circle E Ranch Gang before joining the Blue Caps in late 1956, who told Vincent of Meeks' playing. Peek convinced Vincent to drive to one of the band's gigs and audition Meek.
