    Jerry Lee Lewis

    Postitamine  RockinLady on 08.02.08 12:15

    Lewis was born to the poor family of Elmo and Mamie Lewis in Ferriday, Louisiana, and began playing piano in his youth with his two cousins, Mickey Gilley and Jimmy Swaggart. His parents mortgaged their farm to buy him a piano. Influenced by a piano-playing older cousin Carl McVoy, the radio, and the sounds from the black juke joint across the tracks, Haney's Big House, Lewis developed his own style mixing rhythm and blues, boogie woogie, gospel, and country music, as well as ideas from established "country boogie" pianists like recording artists Moon Mullican and Merrill Moore. Soon he was playing professionally.

    His mother enrolled him in Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas, secure in the knowledge that her son would now be exclusively singing his songs to the Lord. But legend has it that Lewis daringly played a boogie woogie rendition of "My God Is Real" at a church assembly that sent him packing the same night. Pearry Green, then president of the student body, related how during a talent show Jerry played some "worldly" music. The next morning, the dean of the school called both Jerry and Pearry into his office to expel them both. Jerry then said that Pearry shouldn't be expelled because "he didn't know what I was going to do." Years later Pearry asked Jerry "Are you still playing the devil's music?" Jerry replied "Yes, I am. But you know it's strange, the same music that they kicked me out of school for is the same kind of music they play in their churches today. The difference is, I know I am playing for the devil and they don't."

    Leaving religious music behind so far as performing, he paid dues at clubs in and around Ferriday and Natchez, Mississippi. He became a part of the burgeoning new rock and roll sound, cutting his first demo recording in 1954. He made a trip to Nashville around 1955 where he played clubs and attempted to drum up interest, but was turned down by the Grand Ole Opry as he had been at the Louisiana Hayride country stage and radio show in Shreveport. Recording executives in Nashville suggested he switch to playing a guitar. Lewis, even then confrontational, once recalled suggesting to one Nashville producer, "You can take your guitar and ram it up your ass!"

    Two years later, at Sun Records studio in Memphis, Tennessee, producer and engineer Jack Clement discovered and recorded Lewis for the Sun label while owner Sam Phillips was away on a trip to Florida. He became a session musician playing piano for Sun artists like Billy Lee Riley and Carl Perkins. As his own career came on the upswing, hits such as "Great Balls of Fire" soon followed, and would become his biggest hit. Watching and listening to Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley allegedly said that if he could play the piano like that, he'd quit singing. Lewis' early billing was Jerry Lee Lewis and his Pumping Piano.

    On December 4, 1956, Presley dropped in on Phillips to pay a social visit while Perkins was in the studio cutting new tracks with Lewis backing him on piano. The three started an impromptu jam session, and Phillips left the tapes running. He later telephoned Johnny Cash and brought him in to join the others. These recordings, almost half of which were gospel songs, survived, and have been released on CD under the title Million Dollar Quartet. Tracks also include Chuck Berry's "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", Pat Boone's "Don't Forbid Me" and Presley doing an impersonation of Jackie Wilson (who was then with Billy Ward and the Dominoes) singing "Don't Be Cruel. In 1957, his piano and the pure rock and roll sound of "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" (which in 2005 was selected for permanent preservation in the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress) propelled him to international fame. Lewis' first TV appearance was on The Steve Allen Show July 28, 1957, where he played the song "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On"

    "Ei olnud"? Oi, ära niimoodi ära küll sõnama kipu... Räägime ikka olevikus!
    Aga too video... Ta oli seal Brasiilias totaalselt autis ju... ma ei tea, kas alkoholi või narko joobes... Ega ta muidu tavaliselt nii kivis neil aegadel ehk ei olnud... Kuid aastate kohta on ta minu arust tänaselgi päeval siiski suht' hästi säilinud... Ja kui nüüd vaadata, et suuremalt jaolt kõik teised on juba surnud, siis vana pätt Jerry Lee, kes just eriti tervislikele eluviisidele pole elu sees rõhku pööranud... pidi ju 1985. aastal peaaegu otsad andma... on siiani jalul! goodd jumpingpiano

    StrayCat kirjutas:jah "ei olnud" käis video kohta Smile ega videot mis on juba tehtud kunagi ei saa olevikus rääkida Razz
    kui Jerry Lee Lewisest rääkida, siis ta on küll igavesti muhe vanamees Laughing ...rockib siiani :billybilly:

    Jap, mulle ka Jerry Lee inimesena meeldib, kuigi ta iseloomult täiesti vastupidine kui Elvis... Aga videost rääkides... Minu arust just... kuna video on juba tehtud ükskord, siis püsib ta igavesti, kui temast vähemalt üks eksemplargi säilib ja niikaua on ta ikka olevikus ju... Esinemine oli minevikus, aga video on ikka olevikus... See on ju siin, me näeme ja kuuleme seda (või vähemalt need, kellel rahuldav netiühendus on, mitte mina)...

    See ülemine video oli vist filmist "Jamboree"? Igaljuhul... Kunagi ammu-ammu-ammu... enne, kui Jerry Lee nimegi kuulnud olin... vaatasin seda filmi, kus oli see lõik... Film sai kogemata videolindile... ja siis vaatasin seda Jerry Lee kohta vähemalt üks 10..20 korda järjest... Ikka jälle kerisin tagasi ja vaatasin uuesti, kerisin tagasi ja vaatasin uuesti... ja siis alles uurisin kuskilt välja, et Jerry Lee Lewisega tegemist... Nii et see oli esimene kord, kui poissi nägin...
