Jerry Lee Lewis Debuts on the Tube

I've talked about the excitement Jerry Lee Lewis incited in audiences in the early days of Rock and Roll, but he lost a step or two after his marriage to the 14 year old Myra ("Don, everybody in Ferriday married girls that age, got 'em when they was fresh") but until Scott sent over this clip with "The Killer" (We stopped calling him that after one of his wives was found dead in his bed one morning) in his prime, right out of Memphis and full of piss and vinegar.

I must admit that watching this brought back a lot of memories from another era, the world was more sane, and Rock and Roll was taking over the Music World and turning it upside down.

Here's the man who thought he should be King, appearing Live on TV in two shows, it's the longest clip we've put up yet, and some folks will see it all the way through, and others after they see and hear one of their favorite songs.
