THE KILLER.....


 MR. JERRY LEE LEWIS


 ....somewhere in the late 50's..

He was young and full of spunk and had talent running out his ears...
 and I am not getting into
 his life, or his habits or his religion or the fact he married his young cousin...
NONE - OF- MY- BUSINESS stuff....

I'm just sayin' I LUV his music....



This is in 2015...
and he's still sounding great....



...and if you're a fan of 50's ROCK AND ROLL,
and liked Jerry Lee...
then you should see this adorable movie of his life...


DENNIS QUAID was so so cute in his role of
MR. LEWIS...

I've seen it so many times, I've lost count....


I could listen to these youtubes all day long, every single day...

"You not only still have the VOICE...
you've still got that awesome HAIR..."
The best of luck to you and thanks for so many great songs for us fans to enjoy.

  1. He was definitely legendary when it came to music, Rock n roll wouldn't be the same without him.

  4. BJ, My parents took me to see Jerry Lee when I was young. There was a park in Anderson Indiana, called mockingbird hill...we saw Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Anderson and a couple others.. But I can't remember them. It was a fun time. I love that movie with Dennis Quaid. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  6. I love that movie too! I love music from the 50s and 60s. Dennis Quaid did do a great job in that movie. Him and Meg Ryan were married for awhile, right? I sure did love Meg Ryan too........ever since she started out in "As the World Turns" as Betsy. Dont see much of her anymore except I think she dated John Mellencamp for awhile maybe? Were you an Elvis fan as well? I loved Elvis!

  12. Hi B.J.,

    My dad is a big Jerry Lee fan; I distinctly remember he and my mom saw this movie at the theater when it came out. They really enjoyed it! My dad used to say he wished he could play the piano like Jerry Lee Lewis. :-D

    Have a great weekend!

    Hugs,

  13. I didn't even know he was still alive...that's awesome! Yes, we have seen the movie and it was great. Years ago (back in the 70's) my sisters and I went to a Merle Haggard concert and Jerry Lee was also on the ticket. He never made it to the stage. We figured he was having a bad night. He still looks and sounds great!

  16. I ❤️ that movie too! What an amazing career he's had!

  17. I didn't know he married his cousin (first cousin once-removed I think I read right) when she was 13. Two wrongs don't make a right. That's pretty messed up.

  21. the movie was great and the music even more so. Elvis was the King, but Jerry Lee wasn't far behind.
