Notes

Put simply, Jerry Lee Lewis was one of the most influential artists in rock‘n’roll. Like labelmates Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash at Sun Records in Memphis, he helped shape the formative years of the genre, giving it new levels of depth with his blues-inspired boogie-woogie piano-playing. In later years, he would move on to country music, finding yet more success. The man known as ‘the Killer’ has enjoyed a career spanning nearly six decades and has influenced generations of musicians around today, Elton John being just one.

A native of Ferriday, Louisiana, where he was born in 1935, Lewis began playing the piano at an early age. While he was steered in the direction of Christian music, he was far more interested in boogie-woogie, R&B and blues. Chastised by his community as playing ‘the Devil’s music’, Lewis’ rebellious streak was visible from childhood.

He soon migrated to Mississippi, playing piano in the local bars, before he incorporated guitar into his repertoire and headed to Memphis at the tail end of 1956. It would be a move that changed his life. He cut a track for Sun, the local label that had been the launchpad for the young Elvis Presley. But Presley had just left for RCA and Sun was on the lookout for a new star. Lewis was their man. On hearing him, Sun owner Sam Philips described it as a dream come true.
