Jerry Lee Lewis

Twelve days after tonight's concert, the Killer will be 75 years young. He's remained relatively visible since his 1989 biopic Great Balls of Fire, which starred Dennis Quaid(!) as Jerry Lee and Alec Baldwin(!!) as Jimmy Swaggart(!!!) and, though he's slowed down a bit, he still showboats at the piano. At last year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary concerts, he still had a whole lot of shakin' going on (and most of it was voluntary), but more importantly, you could sense the underlying bloodlust with which he wrote his hits. Tonight is a celebration of aging gracefully and otherwise.
