You don't pay on a pre-order until it is posted.

then why was the release postponed if it already exist(in it´s published version)? I guess the Peter´s reading was what you´ll find in stores(finished product?).Tell us Peter?
I know there´s many records made ready and already even advertised and then withdrawn for some (stupid) reason or other...

No, I read it as a word document, so you're right in that it probably doesn't really exist as a book (made of paper etc) yet.

Ian, it's a bit like saying that Jerry has several unreleased albums that "exist", when really they've only been recorded....

To clear up this mystery: the book goes to press in about four weeks. So, technically it does not exist in physical form, but it's on schedule for the November 2 publication! The release is often pushed back in the UK and Europe; I'm not sure why, though I think it has to do with distribution as much as the actual printing.

Instead of dwelling upon Lewis’ notorious sex scandals, an issue that the author says has been written about ad nauseam, the book focuses on the bigger context of the rockabilly’s rocky career

Have I missed something? The poor guy actually marries women instead of just sleeping around and yet still gets bracketed with Profumo et al. :wink:

Rockabilly? Ugh, who likes that shit. As JLL said during at interview at the 1986 rock and roll hall and fame, HE IS ROCK 'N' ROLL!

I wouldn't quite call Jerry Lee Lewis Rockabilly either, but I think you'll find most people on here prefer it to Michael Jackson, Duran Duran & The Pet Shop Boys... :roll:

Peter, there ae NUMEROUS musical styles I listen to from all eras, past and present. I don't just lock myself onto one or two musical genres from 50 years ago and devote all my musical energies to that, whilst childishly dismissing all other types of music as lesser.

JLL is a good musician, but he is far from the greatest. And Michael Jackson, Pet Shop Boys, and Duran Duran are quite far from that as well.

Neil Sedaka is the greatest. (Just kidding.) Sorry, but rockabilly in and of itself is not that awful, but I hate to see JLL mentioned with it as he is vastly superior to it, and it annoys me when he is called that. True rock 'n' roll from the 50's and 60's is vastly superior to rockabilly, in general.

As Jerry mentioned himself:
'I'm not the greatest.......but, I'm the best!
...and he is right!!!

Would have been a lot better, had he not had alcohol and substance abuse problems, and had he treated his career more seriously.

So do I, as most people on here know (see my blog for further proof!).

They're quite far from being music too. :oops:

I disagree. Jerry's lifestyle has always been a BIG part of his music. It's impossible to imagine one without the other.
