The Glasgow show was terrific. Just like the good old days we have two shows I can't choose between, both had high points and different people will have a different preference. Memphis Tennessee probably not the best but interesting to hear. As people have noticed ,there were times Jerry didn't play piano & I felt he might not have been happy with it. Before one song he played a few runs up and down and complained about it befor carrying on. Memphis Tennessee he played very little and also Roll Over Beethoven , but on Beethoven he came back with brilliant piano towards the end. I think Sweet Little 16 got the biggest cheer of the night (after he finished) from an extremely noisy crowd. The closing medley was brilliant and I really felt he was putting a couple of songs in for 'the fans' and of course the stool ....... !!! I said in an earlier post we may hear MWB, if Terry or Graham asked for it and Graham did indeed do so before the show :)
There was no intermission this time and Linda did a longer set before introducing the video. The piano mike needs changing before Jerry comes on so the short vid killed a bit of time I suppose . Linda did a similar set to London, different running order and adding Blue Suede Shoes. She opened with Robert Hall kicking off Rip It Up, and also featured a long Shake a Rattle and Roll with the band taking solos. The others all did identical sets to London.
Reminiscent of olden times a great gathering took place back at the hotel with Stephen Aclkes, Daniel White , Peter Hayman and others entertaining at the piano. Great to see Neil Turner after many years as well as Andrew Macrae , Des Wilson, Folke Myrvang and so many others. I met David Hamer in London for the first time as well as old friends like John Pearce and Dave Webb. Happy days. If he comes back to Europe I hope we can do it again . Judith was very clear - he will not quit performing, it is the travelling he has difficulty with , but on this evidence, done properly, who knows ......

Nice to hear this confirmed, and thanks for the review! :D

In a way these two shows remind me of the two he did in Holland in January 1994 (a similar "mini-tour"). Back then he surprised people by doing more inspired than usual shows and being in better than expected shape. This time he's done it again.

This includes Jerry doing my request for Mean Woman Blues. You can see on the second of the videos I posted earlier that Jerry says he can't remember all the words. I gave him the first line to remind him and as he says on the video, "I'll do it but I might have to fake it." :D

I usually don't like medleys but this version of Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On together with a little of Mean Woman Blues and What D' I Say, that someone in the audience shouted for, was cleverly done and received rapturous applause.

PS I have just heard from them and they have landed safely in Atlanta and are waiting to get off the plane and they will soon be on the last leg of their journey - a short flight to Memphis. Kenneth and the band are already home.

I was impressed. Glasgow was shorter but stronger than London. Strong voice throughout, unusual medley at the end. "Memphis" was a nice surprise though a little rough (I had the impression he finally wants to get it right, so maybe we will hear it again).

Bass at the start of the show a little too loud in the mix, but it got fixed. Sound mix not as good as in London.

ON STAGE times:
Ladyva: 20:00 - 20:11
Peter Asher: 20:11 - 20:22
James Burton: 20:22 - 20:52
Linda Gail Lewis: 20:52 - 21:17
Jerry Lee Lewis Introduction: 21:17 - 21:23
JERRY LEE LEWIS: 21:23 - 22:09

Must say I like the idea of several short sets by support acts. Back in early 2004 Blondell often did longer sets than Jerry Lee Lewis (whether you like him or not, the support should NEVER be on stage longer than the headline act!).

Good to see Graham posting on here.

You are spot on Markus, whenever i watch a wideo with Ronnie in it i always concentrate to look at him even more than i watch Jerry.
I wonder why he quit in Jerrys band?

The first time he quit (in spring 1980) was because he didn't get along with Duke Faglier, 2nd time he quit he wanted to concentrate on a local Memphis band he was in. If he hadn't quit in May 1983 he would've probably been asked to leave soon after any way (just like Randy & Joel were), as Jerry wanted to put together the "All-Star Band" with James Burton, Bob Moore and Buddy Harman (and of course Kenny).

I don't actually think Ronnie's drumming was anything special when he first joined (check out the 1978 'Rock & Roll Reunion' telecast or audios from the 1978 European Tour), but he learned a lot in the 5 years (with a 9 month break) that he was with Jerry. When I chatted to him in 1983 he said himself that his drumming had come a very long way in a few years.

Although he never rejoined, he did play drums for Jerry on at least one concert around 1992 when Jerry was between drummers (after Pete Fletcher quit and before Jim Isbell rejoined).

Perhaps a more important question though is why did Ronnie kill himself earlier this year? :cry:

After Ronnie left Jerry he became a electrician, went into the electrical business and made more money at that than he did drumming for Jerry...and he didn't have to travel.
