Publisher's Summary

Otherwise known as 'The Killer', Jerry Lee Lewis has lived an extraordinary life. He spent his childhood raising hell in Louisiana and Mississippi; gave rock-and-roll its devil's edge with hit records like 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On' and 'Great Balls of Fire'; performed with everyone from Elvis Presley to Keith Richards to Bruce Springsteen to Kid Rock; caused riots and boycotts with his incendiary performances; married his thirteen-year-old second cousin, the third of seven wives; ran a decade's-long marathon of drugs, drinking, and women; nearly met his maker, at least twice; and survived it all to be hailed as one of the greatest music icons.

This is the fascinating authorised biography of this musical genius in his own words. For the very first time, Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story reveals the truth behind the Last Man Standing of the rock-and-roll era. From encounters with legends including Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, John Lennon, Mick Jagger and more, to hair-raising first-person accounts of Jerry's lifelong rivalries with Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry for the title of king of rock-and-roll, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Rick Bragg traces the incredible story of a young man from the American South who used his piano to drive the world into a music revolution.
