Maybe Peter don´t get too critical and negative on Jerry Lee, but he clearly says when it was an excellent, a very good, an ok, or just a bellow par performance. Of course,it is very different when you see the show and when you just hear it afterward, because of the momentum and the climate generated by the public, which is never fully capturated by a sound or even a video record! Overall, i think Peter Hayman is the best thing for us fans regarding Jerry Lee shows information. He is not too critical but have a good base of comparation to say when Jerry is or isn´t inspired and, most particullar (and i think most important nowdays) happy and fit!

Rock on!


Personally I can see both points of view...

When's the last time you saw Peter mention a "below par" performance? The thing which always makes me laugh is that he'll come out with something like "Jerry was better overall than the last tour" but he never says "Jerry was worse overall than the last tour". I also agree with Rocky (a.k.a. Paul MacPhail) that the songs can't always keep getting better (were recent versions of 'No Headstone On My Grave' truly better than the versions he did in 1980 or 1982 for example?).

But yes, Peter Hayman is really good to all us fans, & if it wasn't for him we wouldn't even know what most U.S. shows were like. A good person.


I appreciate Peter reporting back on almost every show in FBM, but it would be nice to read more reports from other fans. Americans in particular hardly ever report on shows, with a full song list.

I have to admit I find Peter's reviews rather samey and tedious to read, analyzing every piano solo. They are a bit too technical for me.

I'm more interested in how Jerry appeared on stage - was he animated, looking at and joking with the audience, etc. or was he in auto-pilot mode looking straight ahead, as though trying to get the whole thing over with as soon as possible?

Some shows can be dismissed as: average show, usual songs, Jerry on auto-pilot hardly acknowledging the audience. Paris 2008 was a case in point.

I think we pretty much know the answer to that one at most shows these days... :roll:

Peter Hayman wrote on the yahoo messageboard:

The Shreveport show was excellent!Jerry delivered a full hour of excitement and was on top form.Every number was very good,with both his piano and voice great.His solos were generally greeted by screams and cheers.Furthermore he seemed to be really enjoying himself,making jokes and flirting with the girls.It was very pleasing to see him doing so well!


......given that this was a short 'internet' comment by Peter & not his full FBM review, we are jumping in a bit ,not content with complaining about Jerrys performance,now there are complaints about the messenger as well ! I think Peter's brief comments address exactly the issues Tony raises , with the full review still to come.

Yes, I did read Peter's welcome comments on the Yahoo site. It does make a welcome change from his usual rather stylized reports in FBM.

I know it is the wrong topic but apparently Jerry visited Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson earlier on last week during their concert in Bossier City, LA.
It is such a "small" info that I did not want to start a new topic. For those of you which are interested in details of the show Kris and Merle did in Chicago, please check the Chicago Sun Times and there you have the reference to Jerry.
Best Wishes

As far as Americans not going to see JLL, the USA is a big country, and there are parts of he ignores largely. The distance I would have to travel would be more than a lot of you would have to travel to see him in another (European) country, and I don't think it is worth paying $400 or more for airplane tickets and taking 2-3 days off of work for a 30-40 min show that we are all intimately familiar with. Now if he came within 4 or 6 hours of me, I would probably go see all those shows, and I would report back with a review and tape them. Sadly I doubt he will be coming to this part of the country any time soon again.
If it's good enough for me,
It should be good enough for you.
