Jerry Lee with Celebrities



Postby richjohnson26 » Sat Sep 01, 2007 8:28 am

I think the rumour was the first time, when he was sporting the sunglasses in New York it was laser eye surgery to correct his short sightedness. Second time I hadn't heard about so I don't know.

Yes, he definately had this done but that was very recent. The first cosmetic surgery was around two decades ago. I first heard rumours during 'The Class of '55' era...& take a look at 'The Johnny Cash Christmas Show' from 1985: either he has some sort of eye infection or allergy, or he's had something 'done' (tellingly, Jerry wore sunglasses when he taped 'Nashville Now' the next day).

We've seen Jerry in 8) twice recently due to eye surgeries. Were they perhaps cosmetic? And could the red rash he had this summer be from a chemical peel or some similar treatment? Well, it doesn't really matter what he's doing to his face. I like the results, so I say as long as it's not too painful for you, honey, keep it up! :wink:


The eye surgery was to make him see better. :roll:

If that's the case they'd be selling this to aging women all over the world & making a fortune as it's obviously a miracle!


Well I'm sure it has some disadvantages too, maybe that's the reason it's not that popular...

I had another one with Buddy Holly and one Everly brother but can't find it right now. Are there any more pics with Elvis, except the ones from the MDQ-session?

I've been wondering about that myself. They certainly met again in 1969 & circa 1975 (& probably other times too).

George Harrison's last ever public performance was at Carl's funeral (he played 'Your True Love').

I didn't know about the '75 meeting. Any more details?

As for the Million Dollar Quartet, I googled 'Million Dollar Quartet' and found two different pictures, both where Elvis is looking towards Jerry Lee. Yet I'm sure I've seen a third, with Elvis looking the other way. Yet I can't find it!

Here is one other pic from the MDQ, but not very different from the other one.

I thought it was you Richard who mentioned this on the yahoo forum a while back(?). Something about speaking to an Elvis associate who said that Jerry went up to Graceland & jammed with Elvis.

Or am I imagining things?

Yes, Johnny Rodriguez. This was taken at the R.O.T. Biker Rally in Austin on 31st May 2003. I recently got audios of the two shows Jerry did that day, & the 2nd show includes a duet with Johnny on 'What's Made Milwaukee Famous'.

re the picture 'with Jud Phillips'..

of rather more significance, in terms of celebrity, is the fact that the guy in the middle is Jack Dempsey, the "The Manassa Mauler", who was world heavyweight champion for much of the 1920s.

The only Elvis associate I've spoken to regarding Jerry Lee and Elvis playing together was Marty Lacker, who mentioned a Sun jam session in 1957. There was Elvis, Jerry Lee and one of the lesser known Sun stars. I'll try and find his response.
I've always thought the last time they met was '69. And I wouldn't be at all surprised if their paths never crossed from '57 - '69.

Riiight . . The Elvis and Jerry Lee '57 jam session.

Okay, here's the post from an Elvis forum when I learned about the
Elvis/Jerry jam. . someone asked which Elvis recording
sessions Marty Lacker (Elvis buddy) had attended. Marty himself said -

> >I had gone back to Sun with Elvis in '57 when he jammed with Jerry
Lee
and
> >Rockin' Ray Smith, although that wasn't really an Elvis session.
> --

People said "surely that was December '56, the famed million dollar
session". Marty said no. .
"it was summer '57"

So I asked. .

> Can you remember much about this Marty, dates, songs. . any info at
all.
> Thanks.

And Marty said

>Just the year, '57. I do remember that Jerry Lee and Elvis
>alternated on
>piano just for the hell of it. It was one hell of a jam especially
>back
>then.

And thats about it.

Elvis did drop by Sun quite a bit, and was certainly in Memphis in
July '57, supervising the renovations at his newly aqured home,
Graceland. Marty also went on to say how warm it was, and they'd go outside with the girls on Union Avenue, then go back in to listen to the music.

I should add that Whole Lotta Shakin' and Teddy Bear were battling
for number one at the start of July '57. Amazing times!
