But he's playing at the JLL Honky Tonk thing?

He never mentioned that. I know it is your wish for at least 20 years now, but why should he stop performing altogether as long as he still sounds good unlike Little Richard, who made a complete fool of himself in Las Vegas 2013?


And unlike Chuck Berry who also made a fool of himself in recent years... I agree, Jerry is still capable of doing a good show. I think there will still be occasional US shows (and I wouldn't totally rule out Europe either if they offered him enough money).


True. Let's also face the fact that none of the others (except for Fats) stopped playing because they wanted to, but because they had to. None of them is currently in good condition:

Chuck Berry => permanent hiccup
Little Richard => broken hip
Fats Domino => diabetes, dementia (Alzheimer's disease)

Of course Jerry has health issues from time to time, but not as serious as those mentioned above. He is also considerably younger than the others.

Indeed. Chuck was (sometimes) doing very inspired and energetic 1 hour concerts at 80.

So, do we have confirmation that Jerry's on his way? Judith usually posts pics.

I see Paul (Rocky) has gone very quiet when challenged over his "Jerry did mention earlier that he will not be touring after this year with no shows in 2016" quote. C'mon Paul, you're usually good at quoting dates and sources! :oops:

They are all on the way and will arrive in London this morning.

Presumably Judith also?

I hope Lee treats fans better than Phoebe did! She was fine with people she knew, but often very rude to strangers who wanted a quick pic or autograph.

Carolyn Coghlan Gremillion also seems to be part of the crew. Who is she?

Jerry's staying at the same London hotel where he stayed with Myra in 1958. This is where he stayed in early 1989 too, when in London to (supposedly) promote the GBOF movie that was still being filmed at the time. After I was an extra in a movie scene (the ridiculous fictitious "pram" scene), I sat at the same table as Jerry for several hours while he did interviews, then afterwards (along with others) went to his hotel room with him where he offered us some coke... the fizzy drink that is!
