Great balls of fire! The Killer has expired at age 87.

Apparently, his hard living caught up to him.

Keith Richards never murdered his wife/wives nor married a 13 year old first cousin :angel:

I saw Jerry Lee at jazzfest in the last decade. Even at his age it was still memorable. Just a big ball of energy and talent.

I forgot he was from Louisiana. I knew that years ago and was reminded when he died.

I was going to post that Goodness Gracious, Great Balls of Fire, Jerry Lee Lewis has died, but I second guessed myself that it was a Little Richard song, then I was going to make a joke that they should have had a telethon for him, but that’s a different Jerry Lewis.

This is Jerry Lee Lewis to me, as good as rock and roll gets here:
