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

[fblikesend]

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:
