I don't know if he is, but I would be surprised if he isn't involved after being such a success (both artistically & commercially) last time. I certainly hope he's producing Jerry again.

Interesting, but even it's not Jerry lee, it seems they have all the instruments in front of the stage except the piano. I just noticed a guitar amp in front of the stage as well.

Did they do this at more concerts back than? Tony?


Don't ask me, I'm just a youngster! Ask 'oldies' like Graham Knight! :D

Seriously, I didn't attend any rock concerts till 1964. Drums were definitely at the back of the stage when I first saw Bill Haley that year, and Jerry Lee later on. Perhaps the above event had a small stage and the drumkit wouldn't fit on?
Long ago in Ferriday down in Louisiana, They all watched Jerry play and pump that old piana

Yes it's Richard, I used to have this McCartney book, Mick Mack's Black n White Snaps or some such title, went in the great post divorce clear out!
Think it had a story that he tried to take more snaps of JLL from right behind the piano but JLL spotted him and told him to go forth and multiply

There are some great books with JLL pics like Honky Tonk Heroes, Honky Tonk (this one has a great pic of JLL lighting a cigar ala Perk from Boston 75) and Marty Stuart's Pilgrims etc book
