From Great Balls of Fire to dozens and dozens of hits and near misses, Jerry Lee Lewis defines an era and a genre of music that is so uniquely American, that no one has ever even tried to copy him. With that unmistakable rockabilly voice, those smokin' piano riffs and an attitude that says I am the great Jerry Lee, he rocks and rolls like no other. As someone once said, it ain't braggin' if you can back it up! One of my regrets is that I never got to see this American Music icon live. Fortunately, he was taped enough that we can see his larger than life persona and talent.
Even though Elvis made today's Christmas Countdown tune famous, Jerry Lee gives a one of a kind rendition live in Cork, Ireland of NO. 12 on the 2015 CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN - BLUE CHRISTMAS.
Technical Note - If you see multiple images -or if you don't see Jerry Lee, you can either click the little circular arrow at the bottom left of these videos or just right click and then click refresh in the dropdown menu. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Hope Your Christmas is Not Blue!
