Crazy Arms was Jerry Lee's first record on Sun. At its release, Ray Price's version on Columbia was already working on a twenty-week run at #1.

Hearing Jerry Lee Lewis early on was what started for me an interest in rock n roll music. Great Balls of Fire and Whole Lotta Shakin Goin on are classics that ignited fuel to the fire of a growing rock & roll sound. Bruce Springsteen said of Jerry Lee "He doesn't play rock n roll; He is rock n roll". R.I.P. Killer

As I have been listening to a lot of Jerry Lee the last couple of days, I realized that he had a great voice. Beside all the wildness on stage and in his personal life he could sing!

My favorite Jerry Lee for the past 3 days...."Don't put no headstone on my grave," (I want a monument)
