A Brief One from Doug Draper, Niagara At Large

Posted October 29th, 2022

Jerry Lee Lews in his prime.

Little Richard and Chuck Berry left us not that long ago. Roy Orbison left a few decades ago and Elvis Presley left the building what now seems like a long time ago.

Now Jerry Lee Lewis, about the last man standing, if not the last of these legencdary rock & roll pioneers from the 1950s has died too at age 87.

To quote signature lines from o one of his biggest hits .’ goodness, gracious great balls of fire.”

Here he is performing another big hit with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band during his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio in the mid1990s. You can watch and hear it by clicking on the screen below –
