Nice on the added info Mike! In retrospect, I should have said, "Rock and roll was done with Jerry Lee Lewis, but The Killer was not done with rock and roll!" He continues to perform his 50s hits today - at 80, he has certainly slowed down a bit, but he can still play the piano, and he remains compelled to get out there and perform.

Opinions have their place on this message board - Not everyone is a fan of Jerry Lee Lewis, we get that - still the facts surrounding the man stand on their own.

Another piano-pounding gentlemen from the 50s deserves mention: Fats Domino! He made national news in 2005 due to Hurricane Katrina, and has performed once or twice in New Orleans since then. Amazingly, his playing and singing sound almost identical to his original recordings. He has stated that he will no longer perform when he is unable to meet that standard, so it's possible we may not hear from him again.
