Biography of Jerry Lee Lewis :

At the age of eight years,he started to play piano on the Stark Upright. His parents Mamie Lewis and Elmo mortgaged their ranch to acquire. "My mother and me a piano and I loved it and worked at it real hard, and they backed me all the way, all their lives.....They were great people." "I'll tell ya, I started playing piano--I learned to play in two weeks."

He has been recognized to locate himself in harmonious pantheon in the trade: "There's simply ever been 4 stylists: Hank Williams, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmie Rodgers, and Al Jolson." Whereas that’s a generalization of 20th -century American melody, in spirit his brag is accurate. Many premature rockers depended onsongwriters for their substance; it was, finally, the mode the trade was planned. The dissimilar Elvis, his adjoining gaze in terms of interpretativeaptitude; he didn’t require arrangers, producers or musicians to support him to do it.

Here was a guy, in his powerful appearance on his typical Sun Studios sides from the fifties, who could simply synthesize country, hillbilly music, R&B, blues and gospel into a mode entirely his own, and not just volubly but harmoniously, and set it in opposition of the backdrops of jobs which had been verified by others. A song artist in the great customs of Hank Williams, Jimmy Rodgers and Al Jolson, Jerry can acquire any song, from 'Big-Legged Woman' to 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and compose it his own. He grew up with a great selection of music "Grand Ol' Opry" and "The Louisiana Hayride" broadcasts, 78rpm soundtrack of blues men and country singers, and the enthused gospel music of the Assembly of God Church. Jerry passed hours hiding following the bar at Haney's Big House soaking wet up the echoes of the blues men like, 18 years old B.B. King.

An originator in a globe of impersonator, Jerry Lee Lewis, will be memorized with Elvis Presley, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry, as the factual fathers of Rock & Roll. He had lost his 2 sons. Tragedies had destroyed him completely but he has conserved and he will never, NEVER! STOP ROCKING! But Jerry has always trust in God.

"When they look back on me I want 'em to remember me not for all my wives, although I've had a few, and certainly not for any mansions or high livin' money I made and spent. I want 'em to remember me simply for my music......" "As long as they gimme a piano I'll be out there. They try to take that away, I'm gonna kick some ass."
