Jerry Lee Lewis, the legendary rockin’ piano man just turned 81. Many people would think that Elton John and Billy Joel invented rock n’ roll on piano but not true. To me, Jerry Lee Lewis will always be the rockin’ piano guy.
I love Jerry Lee Lewis’s music. He’s a huge inspiration and a hero of mine. The guy wasn’t just a killer piano player, he was also a fearless showman when he performs live. When Jerry Lee performs live on stage, you can tell he’s having fun. Whenever he’s playing a tight show and he starts to go nuts, he’s not afraid to kick his piano stool and stand up while playing. He did some pretty wild shit on stage. Jerry Lee certainly loves to perform and he has fun doing it.
What’s even more amazing is that Jerry Lee Lewis still performs live. The guy’s a freakin’ genius. I’ve listened to his music for a long time.
