Small talk

Always strange that some people tend to come up with stories and putting themselves in the limelight when Jerry is announced to play shows.

Maybe not the best moment to do so, but I think MaryJean puts things in a very balanced way and it is clear it is not about making Jerry look bad.

However I am not going to care about family business anymore. I am just a fan of his music and I hope he will be treated with dignity while he is around and even after he is gone even though that might be just an hopeful wish after seeing what happened to James Brown, Bo Diddley and B.B. King. Someone who really seems to have family affairs under control is Chuck Berry. You never hear his family members argueing about anything private in public.

Jerry Lee Lewis still one of Rock's original lineup. Unfortunately, he doesn't quite live up to the hype.

It’s no secret that Jerry Lee Lewis is the weakest of the original Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and of the original lineup of legends created by the Rockin’ ’50s. ........

What an idiot. Judging his legacy on just one collection of early hits, and then criticising his songwriting after saying he's weaker than Elvis (I can't recall Mr Presley writing much!).

Chas' JLL choice is more predictable (he's always says how much he loves 'Mean Woman Blues'), but what on earth is Dave's choice 'You're The Only One' ('The One Rose That's Left In My Heart' perhaps?)... and check out Dave's final "hate"! :shock:

Nursing home's Snoezelen room designed to stimulate the senses
A bubble tube glowing with lights in changing colors. A blanket that crinkles when you touch it. A disco ball reflecting spots of colored light all over the room.
And a screen showing Jerry Lee Lewis singing “Great Balls of Fire” or a slide show of nature photos.
Welcome to the new Snoezelen room in the nursing home at Masonic Care Community, a soothing place designed to stimulate residents’ senses. “The Snoezelen room will allow us to offer innovative approaches for assisting our residents with special needs,” said Administrator Tammy Wheeler in a release. “The various sensory items will enable our caregivers to provide a calm, soothing environment that will in turn improve our residents’ quality of life.”

‘Million Dollar Quartet’ television series to shoot in Memphis
http://www.commercialappeal.com/enterta ... 28131.html
Viacom's Nashville-based CMT network is expected to formally announce tomorrow the filming of an eight-episode television adaptation of "Million Dollar Quartet," the Broadway musical about Memphis' Sun Records. According to sources familiar with the project, the production will be based in Memphis and could spend up to six months shooting in the city.

Filming is expected to begin in early spring, but preproduction has been ongoing for several weeks. An ambitious period piece, the project would be the biggest film or television production in Memphis in many years, and was made possible by the use of state funding incentives for filmmaking, which kept the production in Tennessee, although Louisiana also was competing for the series.

I know this is going to be terrible without even seeing it (file under "Fiction"!).

Nils Lofgren of the E Street Band Recalls the First Time He Heard The River
http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/music/ni ... er-8119998
...............................
“Fast forward to a Willie Nelson and Friends TV Special where he would play with a cast of 20 great singers. I was part of a house band, one of four guitar players. I was with Greg Leisz, one of the great lap steel players and Hutch Hutchinson on bass, all this cast of amazing singers coming through and one of the guests was Keith Richards. There was like 20 people onstage and on the other side of the drummer was this giant piano Jerry Lee Lewis was gonna play and in the bell of this piano was Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Keith Richards.

"Now we're playing so technically now onstage playing with Keith Richards. Now, I'm an old, grizzled veteran myself so I had a sense of humor about it. 'Hey Keith, I can barely see you there but we're making music together.' So Kid Rock comes out ... he's a great showman. We were doing, I can't even remember. 'Whole Lotta Shakin,' maybe. And he's up there whipping the crowd into frenzy and I understand with monitors and the frenetic sound onstage. He didn’t notice but just as Kid Rock got a buzz to go jump off the piano and run to the audience, you know Jerry Lee tells the band to bring it down. None of us thought it was an intentional slight but he didn’t hear the cue. So what of you do? Part of you wants to acknowledge the frenzy but that other part of you says wait a minute, Jerry Lee says bring it down.

"So we're all just treading water. I could see a look on Keith's face, he was feeling the same thing we were feeling but he's freakin' Keith Richards, so out of the blue he just explodes out of the little pack of guitar players he's in, he goes right to the front of the stage, steps in front of Kid Rock and does one of his twirls when he spins on one leg twirls around. He's still a showman so he's not going to try to openly bring the show down, with some kind of scary gift that bums everyone out.

"And even better, as soon as he spun around he turned his back on Kid Rock and walked to the other end of the band and he got down with his guitar between his legs and his legs are spreads and he's looking right in my face and he just sits there rocking out with his back to in our faces with his back to Kid Rock. I can’t tell you what’s going through Keith's mind but all I can tell you is instead of Keith rocking out 20 feet away, now he's just rocking out dirty in front of Greg, Hutch, and me. And all three of us are just in heaven. And Keith went and made a statement and rocked out with the band and I was like 'Hey, there's a lot of people here besides you.' I don’t know if that’s what he was saying to him but that's what he was saying to me."
