When Vince was around 16, he went to a concert in Perth, Western Australia where Roy Orbison opened for Bob Dylan. The audience didn't want Roy to leave at the end of his session and they had to just take him off and send Dylan on. The crowd settled down then and were just as enthusiastic about Dylan as they had been about Roy.
