Happy 75th Birthday, Jerry Lee Lewis. I bet there'll be a "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin On" at your party

In the early days of rock and roll, was where ever a more crazy guy then Jerry Lee Lewis? I sure don't know. He has been seen as a piano pounding wild man with a powerful lust for living that many sources have used. Few singers have the amount of talent that Jerry has had and that are still alive today. When his 1957 hit "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On" came out, every parent was appalled. Lewis was also one of rock and roll's first wild men who never played just one musical style which allowed his msuic to have a greater varitey to it. Jerry Lee Lewis is one of the original musical maniacs and he'll always be a hero to every rock and roll fan!

Andrew, I hope you saw my comments on the Little Richard page which were directed to you. Your enthusiasm and respect for the roots of rock 'n' roll are infectious.

I'll tell you one thing about The Killer, he can play the crap out of a piano. As Hendrix was to the guitar, Jerry Lee is to the piano (IMO).

Jerry Lee Lewis is the original mad man of rock n' roll, embodying the music's most reckless impulses. Is there any other early rocker with a crazier reputation then Jerry? I sure don't know. Depicted as a piano-playing wild man with an undying hunger for living has become the fodder for countless biographies and documentaries.

Jerry Lee Lewis is the original madman of rock n' roll, embodying the music's most high spirited and dangerous impulses. Is there any other 50s rock star with a crazier reputation then Jerry? I sure don't know any.
