Jerry Lee Lewis IS "The Killer" and the last man standing, unless you also count "The Master of Space and Time", LEON RUSSELL.
It was The Killer Himself who gave Leon Russell his very first gig, at the age of fourteen.
Somewhere in America, Leon Russell is playing his heart out tonight.

Oh Please, the Stones just visited us here in Chicago last week, with temperatures at freezing. They were at Soldier Field (outside for those of you unfamiliar with Chicago), and surprised everyone with a beautiful experience.
Then I read the article from writer in Ohio who took the Stones experience,(that had been locally compared to a JJL show in the 60's)and drudge up a show that JJL stood up some 50 years ago. Now, here is my input, pal.

Jerry was due to show up at the Hammond Civic Center, Hammond, Indiana in the mid 80's. A bunch of us,(in our 20's), were looking forward to seeing the Killer. I was enlisted to get the tickets. No problem, BUT I found out, you'd have to stand in the freezing weather just to get tickets. SO- I called and confirmed the ticket opening and called a second time, just to be sure,(I knew my beast), and one guy asked me, "You'd actually stand in this freezing weather for his tickets?", I responded, Hell yes, just in case he DOES show up.... Needless to say, he didn't,(He was ill, then, and damned near died) And I have never complained, or wrote to anybody, till now.
These comments about JJL and his lifestyle, as opposed to say, the Stones, or any other entertainer, just ticks me off. They all have flaws, they all have talent, and unless you hear otherwise, they are all human. JJL just doesn't care what kind of telescope you put on him, it's his life.

Jerry Lee Lewis is a great rock 'n' roller who has lasted the course. I have seen him on stage many times throughout the years. He always puts on a great show. His 'Sun' Studio tracks are some of the best ever recorded.

Like many can say, I sat in with Jerry at Hernando's Hideaway and at the Hot Air Balloon when it was open on Madison here in Memphis. He can't or won't play a song the same way twice, can't or won't play as good as his original, is stuck on himself and never, that I know of, plays in sharps or flats on the piano. I saw him the first time in the mid '50's and at 65 I still admire his ability and talent but don't care to ever pick with him again. He's too proud of himself to be the least bit humble, BUT, here's to ya, Killer !!!
