Is there an early rock & roller who has a crazier reputation than the Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis? His exploits as a piano-thumping, egocentric wild man with an unquenchable thirst for living have become the fodder for numerous biographies, film documentaries, and a full-length Hollywood movie.
On the heels of his landmark recording "Last Man Standing", Jerry Lee Lewis speaks candidly about his 50-year recording career, and, for the first time, demonstrates the piano style that defined rock-n-roll. On "Killer Piano", Jerry discusses his youth and career, reminisces with his family, and demonstrates many of his favorite rock-and-roll and country songs. Plus, the DVD is hosted by Linda Gail Lewis and features a complete live concert with Jerry's band at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. Also included is historic footage from Jerry's first appearance on the Steve Allen show, rare family photos, and printable sheet music transcriptions that pianists can use to study and learn Jerry's pivotal style.
Jerry Lee Lewis 1986 appearance at Orlando’s Church Street Station is known among his fans as one of the more complete documents of the piano-abusing hell-raiser, somewhat mellowed by then but still emanating an underlying aura of menace and unpredictability. Lewis knows he’s got the smiling, clean-cut crowd in the palm of his hand, teasing before pleasing as he leads his slick band through catalogue highlights, ranging from Great Balls Of Fire through country outings such as You Win Again to self-referential latter-day rockers the likes of Middle Age Crazy.
