Flashback Friday: Jerry Lee Lewis – A Whole Lotta Shakin IS STILL Goin’ On


As demonstrated in the following totally epic slice of rock and roll history, it doesn’t, and probably won’t EVER, get much crazier than Jerry fucking Lee Lewis.

Exhibit A – This Video

Exhibit B – Last Man Standing: The Duets

Exhibit C – HE IS TOURING. AT 73 YEARS OLD. Unbelievable. I thought the man was DEAD and I come to find out that he’s got a Europoean tour kicking off next week. Check it:

Not even this piece of shit that I found on youtube takes away from the obvious fact that he made some damn good music in his time. I don’t even care that he was allegedly boning his 14 year old cousin – shit, that’s none of my business OR yours. But I’m not sure if I’ll have an easy time getting over this one:
