Happy 75th Birthday, Killer!

Jerry Lee Lewis turns 75 today. I got to see him play this weekend at the Fox Theater in Pomona. Somebody filmed some great footage of him. The guy looks every fucking minute of his 75 years, but considering how he lives, it's amazing that he's even alive. There was a great piece on him in Playboy a couple years ago, and it said he was still doing two- and three-hour sets. I guess it's caught up with him a little bit, he only did about 10 songs, but a great time none the less. Opening bands were Rev. Horton Heat and The Head Cat, which is Lemmy from Motorhead doing rockabilly covers with the drummer from The Stray Cats and the guitarist from The Rockcats.
