Quote of the Day
I rage against Vincent van Gogh for needing to die at 37, after painting for only ten years.
I have to accept my role. I will never kill myself like Vincent Van Gogh. Nor will I paint beautiful water lilies like Monet. I can't do that. I'm in the idiot role of being a kiddie book person.
I'm an enormous admirer of Christopher Lee. He's somebody, along with Vincent Price, who I celebrate, and I wanted my movies to show that celebration and that honoring of these great film stars that were unafraid to go into horror and Grand Guignol and the macabre.
I was asked by an editor to consider writing something about an American inventor. I asked him if he knew who invented the computer. He said he didn't. In that case, I told him, I should write a book about John Vincent Atanasoff.
The only work I did for the next five years after splitting from Vincent was work I'd already lined up.
One of my favorite beauty products is Vincent Longo Water Canvas creamy blush. I have it in every color and I've been using it for 5 years and that's all I put on when I leave the house. It looks so natural I just put a little bit on my cheeks to give them some color.
Then I abandoned comics for fine art because I had some romantic vision of being like Vincent Van Gogh Jr.
I was very keen on people like Elvis, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Gene Vincent.
They prospect of seeing oneself in the mirror clean-shaven is too close to a Vincent Price film... a prospect not to be contemplated, no matter the compensation.
The first people I ever saw were probably Little Richard and Gene Vincent.
I hope my fans remember my name is Gene Vincent and not Gene Autry.
