Revisions for gig lists 1956-

Postby thrund » Wed Jan 05, 2011 8:04 pm

During recherches for 'mamorosos' '1983 New York Show' I found in one of my lists (& Paul mentioned the show too) that:
15.05.1981 - Providence (Rhode Island), Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel
According to Paul:
He was announced for two shows that night. His band showed up the first show, he didn't.....he did the second show, a good show.

The show was taped and named 'May 1981, Rhode Island'......just for the collectors to get more details about (and for the 'gig lists' we have on here and Wolfgangs website).

No problem Ian, good to have the gig list on here too.
I don't know whether you noticed;
Inside my reply to 'mamoroso' are also a few new details (venues) for the list.
Example: Ritz Club, New York isn't the same as Ritz.

Paul how accurate is that list? I looked through to see how many times Jerry Lee appeared in my home town Bath and can see 1 appearance yet a friend of mine says he saw Jerry twice in Bath!? I am no longer in contact with him to get the detail. Is it possible that Jerry did two shows in one night in Bath that night? I got the impression from him the two times were different years though?
Ian




Was in the pub last night :shock: playing various tracks on the jukebox when a guy came up to me during You win again said 'who's playing Jerry Lee' he then then went onto say 'I saw Jerry Lee twice in Bath' I said 'what two different shows or two shows on the same date?' No he came over around '63 and came again 18 months or so later. So that's two different guys with the same story so I guess there is a date from Bath to add to the list. :D

Hope the beer was good at the pub Ian :)

Looking at Wolfie´s "On tour" section on his website. It actually has at least one performance by Jerry Lee in Bath, at 27.05.63 - Bath, England - Pavilion.

The second one doesn´t seem to be known. But there´s probably more than 1000´s shows we have no clue of yet.

Now you mention the beer it was fine and at a reduced price which made it even better tasting. As for the show in Bath again it was at the Pavilion again but 18 months or so later which would tie in roughly with the Nov/Dec 1964 tour.

When i met the legend Gary Skala in the year of 2000 at Jerry Lee´s ranch during the birthday party. Gary estimated that he´d seen about 4000 shows. Correct number or not, but one can think that these were mostly in the US. I think we´re just in the beginning of nailing down all of Jerry Lee´s performances.

Jerry Lee´s been a hard working man over the years :)

When I began writing "Ferriday Fireball" in 1957, I had already began amassing as many Jerry Lee showdates I could find from Cashbox, Billboard, newspapers, Kay's publications, magazines, and other sources. Through the years it was an impressive list but of course there were many gaps. By the time the first edition of "Ferriday Fireball" came out, with the help of fan club journals and first-hand show reports mixed in with shows I've seen (over 120) from 1962-1990, it was 75% acurate. This is the copy that Wolfgang received. When the second edition came out it was 82% correct because of newly found date info from sources and fans around the world. Then a big thing happened that made the third edition almost bang-on. I was able to receive the complete booking files from the Ray Brown office who handled all his bookings throughout the 60s and early 70s. Thousands of missing dates were included in the 3rd edition. Then contracts for bookings showed up from Al Embry's days with Jerry in the 80s. The fourth edition of "Ferriday Fireball" has just been released and with the help of Robert Porter (who owns a third edition), he booked Jerry for twelve years, it contains hundreds of new dates and then a guy in California sent me TV guides from the 50s and 60s listing tv shows we never knew Jerry had ever guest on like Town Hall Party and others. As Pierre Pennone says, this book is a never ending process but it's getting closer to the full story of places Lewis played. It's now got about 95% of them, but there are still blank areas. It's like putting a jigsaw puzzle together. Info comes in from so many different sources. Just this past week I was in Connecticut and ran across a guy with some old posters and tickets of rock 'n' roll shows he had attended as a teenager and there was a couple of shows from Jerry I never knew about...plus Carl Perkins and Fats Domino. E-Bay is a great place too with ticket stubs and old posters as someone has stated earlier.

A sideline to this book Ian and Perk, is that when I began writing the story on Jerry Lee back in 1957 and up till about 1980, I was greedy, I guess. I did it solely for myself so I'd have a full story on the life of Jerry Lee...plus the other artists I wrote about because they were my favorites. It was my wife who suggested that other Jerry Lee fans might want to have this info I spent my life gathering. That's why the books finally began releasing to fans world-wide. Why hide music history? With the cost of mailing and printing I make very little. It's never been about money... I do okay without them financially. However, I've got many letters, e-mails, and even phone calls from around the world praising these books. That encouraged me to go on. When I interview stars, their biggest regrets being they never keep journals or diaries of where they played. It was like Sam Phillips not keeping files on his early recording sessions until the Union made him do it in 1958. No one knew back then that all these dates were gonna be important someday.
By the way Ian, you're doing a pretty good job yourself with this forum. Fans really appreciate it. I know I do. Paul (Rock Starr Publications).
