…Vincent archivist Derek Henderson recalls a gig where it was impossible to ignore the onstage discord: “I’ve one clear memory although I can’t put an exact date to it. At the instrumental break in a song Gene was really goading Ritchie to ‘Go!’, whacking the mic stand near him and moving closer in an obviously aggressive manner, with Ritchie looking decidedly overwhelmed and disconsolate, not looking Gene in the face but watching his fingers…And I have to say, not playing in a very fluid manner.” (p53)
