JERRY LEE LEWIS: REMEMBERING EARLY ROCKABILLY

Jerry Lee Lewis was inducted into the the Country Music Hall of Fame today (it’s about time – the Rock n’Roll Hall of Fame snapped him up in 1986) and it brought back memories. Jerry was one of the original rockabillies (right, Brian Setzer?) and when I was writing for Star Magazine, I always went to see his shows – mostly at hillbilly bars. The shows were always wild and fun and more often than not, Jerry ended up in a fistfight with some guy in the audience. Unlike many celebrities, Jerry LIKED my tabloid magazine and invited me to his dressing room when he played in Hollywood. (photo above) I was surprised to find petulant looking Lisa Marie Presley in the dressing room also. Bob Dylan also walked in with his entourage and I recall he looked really dirty and I stepped back to give him plenty of space…
