Seeing all of the misinformation regarding Jerry Lee Lewis, here are some facts about the legendary ivory tickler:

By the late 50's, Jerry Lee Lewis was only "done" with rock and roll: His 1958 marriage to his 13-year old cousin coupled with his British tour got him famously blackballed just about everywhere. History tends to say that his story ends here, but the man is alive, kicking, and still playing shows today, so, no, the story isn't over until the man leaves the planet.

With his career in rock and roll behind him, JLL embraced country music in the late 60s, very effectively: He had 17 top 10 Billboard singles between 1968 and 1977 - artists who are "done" do not accomplish feats of this nature.

Side note: Would Buddy Holly have had country hits, had he lived? Probably! Nashville has paid many tributes to the man and his music. To those of you who do not like country music, consider that, had there not been such artists as Hank Williams and Bill Monroe, Buddy Holly might have never picked up a guitar. Food for thought!
