I already posted this in the "Discussions"-section as this is a tribute event, not a live event JLL will participate in.

Most surprising name here is Mike Love, not someone I'd normally associate with JLL!

Jerry Lee Lewis is turning 85, and “The Killer” is celebrating the milestone birthday with his millions of fans around the world through a giant virtual live stream event, “Whole Lotta Celebratin’ Goin’ On: 85 Years of The Killer.” Hosted by actor John Stamos, the special will feature performances and well wishes from friends and fans including Elton John, President Bill Clinton, Willie Nelson, Lee Ann Womack and Joe Walsh, among many others.

The evening, which will air on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. CT via Jerry Lee Lewis’ official Facebook and YouTube channels and on jerryleelewis.com, will also mark the first time in 40 years that Lewis has been in the same room with his famous cousins, country legend Mickey Gilley and televangelist Jimmy Swaggart.

Other celebrities lined up to celebrate Lewis include Billy F Gibbons, Bonnie Raitt, Chris Janson, Jacob Tolliver, James Burton, Jerry Phillips, Linda Gail Lewis, Lindsay Ell, Marty Stuart, The Beach Boy’s Mike Love, Priscilla Presley, Tom Jones, and Wink Martindale along with appearances from Jerry Lee Lewis’ road band, Kenny Lovelace, Ray Gann and Kenny Aronoff. An additional lineup announcement will follow in the coming weeks.

The star-studded event will benefit Christian charity organization World Vision.

The event will also feature a special reunion between Lewis and his famous cousins, televangelist Jimmy Swaggart and country legend Mickey Gilley, marking the first time all three cousins have been in the same room in 40 years.
With the loss of Little Richard earlier this year and Chuck Berry in 2017, Lewis is one of the last surviving original rockers. The singer and pianist suffered a serious stroke last year, but thankfully regained his ability to play the piano and was able to record a gospel album in Nashville in January. Lewis was joined by guitarists Kenny Lovelace and James Burton, along with Lee Ann Womack and gospel legends the McCrary Sisters on backing vocals.

As for the A-list attendees, Elton John recently listed Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis as his musical role models in his recent autobiography, ME.

“They were my real idols. It wasn’t just their style of playing, although that was fabulous …. it was the way they stood up while they played, the way they kicked the stool and jumped on the piano. They made playing the piano seem as visually exciting and sexy and outrageous as playing the guitar or being a vocalist. I’d never realized it could be any of those things before.”

While Lewis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, the rock icon told Rolling Stone in a recent interview he’s got his eyes on Country Music Hall of Fame.

“I’d like that to happen,” Lewis said. “I don’t know any reason why not. You couldn’t be any more country than I am. I think I’ve always been a country artist. ‘Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On’ was No.1 in Country, so was ‘Great Balls of Fire.’”

When Rolling Stone joined Lewis in the studio this year, he spent two days laying down tracks with a band that included guitarists Kenny Lovelace (who has played with Lewis since 1966) and James Burton, plus Lee Ann Womack and gospel legends the McCrary Sisters on backup vocals.

In an interview around those sessions, Lewis was focused on his next goal: Getting inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. “I’d like that to happen,” Lewis said. “I don’t know any reason why not. You couldn’t be any more country than I am.”

That's how the language over there works. Joe Biden is also called the vice-president.
