I've nothing but really fond memories of Wayne "Meat Man" Terrell and I wish him well. I shared his house (a little further down Lousiana Avenue) for a while in the mid '90s and got to know him and his then girlfriend well, but they both liked to party HARD. I remember going on an all-night bender with Wayne, his girlfriend and Marian to some of the bars around Natchez Under-the-Hill and put it this way, Bud Light wasn't the only thing we consumed.....Frankie never seemed to approve of any of his girlfriends, hence the total lack of sentiment over this tragic incident.

I've never met Wayne, but apparantly he accompanied Jerry on a European tour, does anyone know which one? Must've been during the 1978 - 1983 era, as my friend John Pearce recalls him hanging out with drummer Ronnnie Norwood a lot.

How many kids has Frankie got, & in what order are they? I agree with others, someone should attempt a full JLL Family Tree (& not just his ancestors).

Prayers and questions as to why this so often happens in this extended family.
Long ago in Ferriday down in Louisiana, They all watched Jerry play and pump that old piana

Wayne was certainly with Jerry in London during the early '80s (I can't remember which tour) as he told me of his fondness for English girls. He told me he once nearly drowned a girl accidentally in a London hotel swimming pool as she gave him oral....!!

Frankie has 5 kids: Melinda (the most level-headed of Frankie's daughters) who'll be 34/35 now; Marian (in the Drive-Thru clip) who'll be in her late 30s/early 40s; Mamie (last time I heard was living in Memphis) who'll be in her early 40s, then Wayne and Jerri, who I think will both be in their early 50s now. The last time I saw Jerry (in fact, every time I've seen Jerri) she was in a really bad way and I don't know how her health is thesedays.

This can be seen as a Terrel quote but not be taken seriously, they make up stories like that in a minute (especcialy for young boys like you) :lol:

OMG, what a family... :shock:
I'm a rollin' stone all alone and lost
For a life of sin I have paid the cost
When I pass by all the people say
Just another guy on the lost highway

Wayne does not go by the name Terrell. His last name is New, Frankie's second husbands last name. He is 52 and lives in Garland, Texas now. Jeri Christina is 51. Mamie, Marian, and Melinda are all Marion Terrells daughters.

Frankie's been married 3 times? I thought it was only twice?

Frankie was first married in 1957 at twelve years of age to Johnny Edwards. No children. She divorced him in 1959 (he went to work as flunky and driver to Jerry Lee for a year). She married at age fifteen to Boyce Wayne New (father of Wayne and Jeri Christina, and third child who died in 1962 at 2 months). She divorced Wayne in 1962 and married third time to Marion Terell in 1964.

Was Russell Smith really in Jerry's band in 1967? Frankie seems to think so:

Do we have an exact date for "Anderson, Indiana at Mockingbird Hill Park"? I'm pretty sure this photo is from 1968 or 1969 myself... :?

Peter, in doing the detective work concerning Jerry at Mockingbird Hill Park, you are correct. #1. Russell did not return to playing drums with Jerry until 1968 as Morris Tarrant was drummer in 1967. #2-Mockingbird Hill Park is a summer thing, open from May-September. It is also a country music park...not rock. Jerry performed only rock in 1967. He did play there on September 8, 1968. He played there again on August 24, 1969. I have 90% of his May-September schedule in 1967 and Mockingbird Hill Park is not listed. I'm not saying he did not play Anderson in 1967, but it is highly unlikely.
