He is very aware of him, opened a show for him in 1995 and praised his abilities then and also more recently:

I suspect Jerry admires piano players with their own styles (Elton John, Fats Domino, Ray Charles, etc) far more than he does JLL impersonators.

Interesting to know that the killer likes Elton John. Especially in the early days Elton did some good stuff.

Great to see. Obviously he's touched by age, but it's still a dignified and feisty performance. He seems quite touched by the reaction/size of the crowd.

"..what everybody knew but Jerry Lee" (quote from "You win again") - great to see him putting his name in the verses again. His vocals sound great, but somethimes a bit off-key.

The sound of some of the video's from the audiance is better than that professional screening in my opinion. I think the sound for the TV screening is coming direct from the mixing desk but hasn't really been mixed or so. it's just the very dry sound. Great filming though!

What a performance! He seems to be really inspired and playful and impressed by the "flock of people" :D

Elton John meets Jerry Lee Lewis, Quint Davis scraps a speech, and more 2015 New Orleans Jazz Fest moments
http://www.nola.com/jazzfest/index.ssf/ ... nt_da.html
What makes Elton John nervous? Meeting Jerry Lee Lewis, one of his musical heroes, for the first time during the 2015 New Orleans Jazz Fest.

As he hustles around the Fair Grounds on a golf cart, Quint Davis, Jazz Fest's longtime producer/director, hears as much music as anybody. But he's also privy to backstage moments and encounters that the average fan never sees.

On the afternoon of May 2, the festival's massive second Saturday, Jerry Lee met with an apparently star-struck -- and Adidas track suit-wearing -- Elton John for the first time in a dressing room trailer behind the Acura Stage. "Elton said it was the most nervous he's ever been, more than any gig," Davis recalled.

Earlier, Davis paid a courtesy call on Jerry Lee prior to the rock 'n' roll legend's short set on the Acura Stage. In a backstage trailer, Lewis' wife, clad in black and gold, introduced herself as "Mrs. Killer."

Davis had had some concerns about scheduling Lewis just before Elton John on Acura, a high-profile slot with an enormous audience. But those concerns evaporated as soon as he encountered the Killer.

"That was a big risk on my part, to put a 79-year-old walking with a cane on before arguably the biggest act we've ever had," Davis said. "But when Jerry Lee shook my hand, it was not an old man handshake. It was solid and it was strong; there was no mushy in his hands.

"Right there I thought, 'Oh, yeah. He's got it.' He played a smoking set. I don't how long it was, 35 minutes, but he just pounded it out."

Jerry Lee Lewis and Elton John is a perfect pairing. I don't understand the manager's problems.

I thought Elton John was one of the guests (along with Ringo Starr & others) who were backstage when Jerry played The London Palladium in 1972?

Graham Knight prevented Elton from entering Jerry's dressing room then...
