Otherwise known as The Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis has lived an extraordinary life. He gave rock-and-roll its devil's edge with hit records like 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On' and 'Great Balls of Fire'; caused riots and boycotts with his incendiary performances; performed with some of the greatest musicians from Elvis Presley to Keith Richards; married his thirteen-year-old second cousin, the third of seven wives; ran a decade's-long marathon of drugs, drinking, and women; and nearly met his maker, at least twice. He survived it all to be hailed as one of the greatest music icons, and now, for the very first time, he reveals the truth behind the Last Man Standing of the rock-and-roll era. From encounters with legends including Johnny Cash, John Lennon and Mick Jagger, to hair-raising first-person accounts of Jerry's lifelong rivalries with Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry for the title of king of rock-and-roll, Pulitzer Prize- winning journalist Rick Bragg traces the incredible story of a young man from the American South who used his piano to drive the world into a music revolution. Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story is the fascinating authorised biography of this musical genius in his own words.
