Music, E’ dead Jerry Lee Lewis, legend of rock ‘n’ roll – Music

Brani indimenticabili come ‘Great Balls of Fire’ entered the sound colonna di ‘Top Gun’ as I carried it to meta’ anni Cinquanta nell’Olimpo del rock’n’roll: Jerry Lee Lewis, sopranonominato ‘The Killer’, e’ dead oggi at 87 anni nella sua casa a sud di memphis. Recently inducted into the Country Hall of Fame, Jerry was at the time in ill health and due to the fact that he was on the Tmz gossip site and had not prematurely announced his death because he was quick to correct it.

Born in Louisiana into a poor family who had mortgaged the house to buy his first piano, Jerry had only been married for 14 years if he was eligible for the first time in public at a local auto dealership. Da bambino he attended a scuola evangelica: he was not cacciato per aver suonato a boogie-woogie version of “My God is Real” considered irreverent.

Il debutto vero e proprio was 21 years old: a colpo di fortuna. With impeccable timing he was presented to the Sun Studios of Memphis asking for an audition. Sun Records has just sold the first year of Elvis’ contract and also has launched a new star to complete a rose from birth like Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison. Il primo disco was a steroid version of Ray Price’s ‘Crazy Arms’. With ‘Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On’ from 1957 Sun Records ottenne quello che cercava e ‘Great Balls of Fire’ in novembre di quello stesso anno sigillo’ il trionfo. Altrettanto scatenate waso le performance: Lewis saliva sul box “come fosse posseduto dalla musica del diablo”, as the definitive lui stesso.

The rise was fast like the old one: in 1958, While the third successo ‘Breathless’ salivated at the second post of the classifiche, Jerry did embark on a triumphal tour in Great Britain and the tour operator was followed by the ragazzina that traveled with lui, Myra Gale Brown, it was her mother of 13 years and Per di piu’ una cugina, e che Lewis was ancora esposato con una seconda moglie when aveva pronounceto i suoi terzi voti nuziali. The rivelazioni created a scandalo en entrambe e la giustificazioni de Jerry did not calm him down: “13 anni non e’ giovane per niente, dalle nostre parti l’eta’ non conta. Ti puoi posare a 10 anni se found a husband”. Il tonfo que segui ‘lo mise a lungo in panchina, ma a meta’ anni Sessanta Lewis trovo ‘la sua redenzione de sua nel country.

A window of the album entered the top 10 of the new generation fine with ’39 and Holding’ from 1981. Alcohol and drug abuse negli anni ’70 e ’80 ebbero pero’ un prezzo tra disastri familiari – la quarta moglie annegata In swimming pool, the fifth death due to overdose of methadone – and cause with the treasury. In 1976, while keeping the TV at the house of the moglie, Lewis turned to the pet of his whistleblower, Norman Owens, while looking at a bottle of Coca Cola and the victim died. Due mesi dopo, poi, he did enter Graceland, Presley’s villa in Memphis, poche ore dopo esser estato fermato per guida in estato di ebbrezza.
