Jerry Lee (1935) Lewis


American musician. A dynamic vocalist and pianist of rock 'n roll since the '50s. Self-taught on the piano, he projects arrogant self-confidence on stage and uses his whole body in his performance. He started playing piano by ear at age eight and was a pro from the time he was 14. In the early '60s, he mainly did pop and rhythm and blues and changed to county western in 1968.

Lewis played over 250 engagements a year until 1981 when he was hospitalized with stomach problems. After 1986 he did mostly club work. Two of his great hits are "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and "Great Balls of Fire."

He went through a period of bad publicity when he married his 13-year-old cousin, whom he later divorced. By 1986 he had racked up a total of six marriages and divorces. He took his sixth wife, Kerrie, in 1984 and they had a son in 1986. Kerrie managed Lewis' business affairs, but the marriage began to unravel in 1996 and concluded two years later. On 4/22/2002, she finally served divorce papers, two days short of their 18th wedding anniversary. On June 15, 2005, his divorce from his sixth wife was finalized in Hernando, MS.
