Op het Internationale Documentaire Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) gaat de  documentaire Don't fuck with the Lewises van Ronny Kristoffersen in première. Hierin wordt verslag gedaan van een 'turbulent' bezoek aan Jerry's zus Frankie Jean, die nog steeds woont in  het dorp waar zij zijn opgegroeid: Ferriday, Louisiana (ziedeze website voor meer informatie over haar museum).

De laatste gelegenheid om deze documentaire in de bioscoop te zien is  aanstaande zaterdag 27 november in City, Amsterdam (20:45). Zie de website van het
IDFA voor meer informatie.

At the Internation Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), the documentary Don't fuck with the Lewises, produced by Ronny  Kristoffersen, will have its world premiere. This is the description as provided by the IDFA:

"A Norwegian film crew travelling across the southern states of America  comes across rock legend Jerry Lee Lewis' native home in Ferriday,  Louisiana. Although initially they are especially attracted to the  nearby drive-thru liquor store and bar, they decide to concentrate on the striking manager of both the liquor store and Lewis' childhood home. Jerry Lee's sister Frankie Jean invites the gentlemen over to her house, where she and her husband air some dirty laundry about her "musical hero" of a brother. Suddenly they are interrupted as a black townsman  tries to rob the liquor store. All weapons in the Lewis house are eagerly brought into play. It turns out that Ferriday is a place where racial hatred, fear and violence are everyday phenomena."

The documentary will be shown this Saturday, November 27, in the cinema  'City' in Amsterdam. See the
IDFA website for more details. It may also be broadcast on Dutch television on December 6.

The MGM movie  "High School Confidential" (1958), directed by Jack Arnold, will be released on DVD on June 15.

The movie stars Russ Tamblyn as a young narcotics agent, who works undercover at a high school in California. According to the
Internet Movie Database, High School Confidential is "a typical morality play of the era, filled with a naive view of drugs, nihilistic beat poetry, and some incredible '50s slang". Jerry's main contribution is during the title song in de first minutes of the  movie, lip-synching the song in the bed of a  pickup truck. The movie version of the song is different from the Sun single.

Review inNashville  City Paper of the new '2-for-1' CD featuring 'Southern Roots' and 'Boogie Woogie Country Man':


By Ron Wynn, Nashville City Paper
May 21, 2004
"Jerry Lee Lewis destroyed forever any notions during the mid-`70s that  he'd lost anything as either a pianist or singer.
Southern Roots/Boogie Woogie Country Man (
Raven) combines these two great albums onto one disc. The first presents the Killer flailing away  on the keyboard and delivering R&B gems like "Hold On I'm Coming" and  "Blueberry Hill" in top form, while he turns to country  and rockabilly on the second album, doing fantastic drinking songs   ("Red Hot Memories (Ice Cold Beer"),) heartache and trouble tunes  ("(Remember Me) I'm The One Who Loves You"), even some gospel ("Jesus Is On The Mainline").
This is magnificent music, and hasn't been available in a reasonably   packaged set for many years."

In April,  Jerry gave a private show in Geneva, Switzerland. According to the website, Jerry really heated up the crowd and made the  Chinese dance with the Russians and Americans. And the Armenians even  whirled across the dance floor with the Turks! This is the original French text:

"La plus fastueuse a été évidemment celle du groupe  Franck Muller: 1200 invités à un dîner assis, sous une immense tente  installée au sein du Watchland de Genthod avec, comme vedette, le rocker Jerry Lee Lewis qui, malgré son âge, a chauffé la salle au point que les  Chinois dansaient le rock avec les Russes ou les Américains. J’y ai même vu des Arméniens virevolter avec des Turcs, preuve que Genève et l’horlogerie sont de formidables facteurs de paix."

New link added to report in the Commercial Appeal of Jerry's show at the Beale  Street Music Festival on May 1. It was a rainy show:

"It eased up a while, but then about 8 p.m. rain with  gusty winds slammed into Tom Lee Park again. That delayed Jerry Lee Lewis's set  about an hour, but back in his trailer, the Killer was philosophical: "You don't question God."

Another report can be found on theironline journal of this festival:

"Jerry Lee came through with all the moves, banging the keyboard,  planting his ass on it at an appropriate time and pointing to heaven in a signature move. He was unflappable, the crowd was committed and although it was only a handful of tunes, they were given and taken with  all the boogie woogie love in the known universe."

Article  about Jerry in the latest issue of Rolling Stone:

"He was an evangelist for the devil's music. He gave himself over to libidinous energy as no white musician had ever done. [...] Great Balls of Fire" and "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On" are the iconic singles. But if you really want to understand Jerry Lee Lewis, find some videotape performance of him doing "Great Balls of Fire." It's pure, narcotic rock & roll excitement -- and those moments have been few and far between."

The release date is probably end of the summer.


All of Jerry's parts on the record were cut at the Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis.


The CD will be released by DreamWorks (, a Universal label.


Not all songs will be duets: there will be three or four tracks that don't have anyone but Jerry on them.


Paul McCartney, Van Morrison and Robert Plant, who were mentioned as contributors previously, are not on the record.

Jimmy Rip:
" This record really is for the fans. It's got rock n roll the way people remember him rockin'. There's things on the record that are just as  emotional as anything he's done. And also, I tried to bring him only  songs that spoke to his life. Each song was like a little chapter on  Jerry's life. So I really did make this one for the fans & I think I  know what they want. I want this record to make people know that he's still the genius that his reputation says he is. He's still all there &  then some, & he's the last man standing."

Part of the  tour programme is a letter from Jerry addressed to all his fans:

Apart from my family, the most important people in my life are you, my fans and friends.  Too many young  performers seem to forget that nowadays and that is why their careers don't last too long. Throughout my life I've been privileged to have the most loyal and loving fans in the whole of music. This tour with Blondell means a lot to me personally because as the Chinese say ...............This is the year of "The Killer".

My new album "Old Glory" is due out this year and has been superbly  produced by my friend Jimmy Rip. I hear Jimmy is also going to  produce Blondell's next album also. Good one Son, you've got the best.  He annoys me that boy - talented, good looking and intelligent, reminds me of myself.

The quality and calibre of the people who contributed to "Old Glory" have been emotional for me and I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart. With this year marking the 50th Anniversary  of "Rock n'Roll", I believe there could be some "New Glories" to match the  "Old Glory".

Many thanks to my gorgeous daughter Phoebe and my friends JW Whitten,  Steve Green, and Jim from RNJ for making this "Generations Tour"  possible.

Lastly, for the past, the present and the future - thanks to all of you  for tonight.

Be careful there's a "Killer" in town!

God Bless You All,  Jerry Lee Lewis

Jerry and  his band, including the Memphis Horns and background singers, arrived in  Scotland today, after an intermediate landing in Amsterdam. According to  TEX (The Travelin' Man) and Graham Knight, he looked fit and well. By request of many fans Kenneth Lovelace, Jerry's bandleader, decided to  take his fiddle with him.
A report by Graham Knight from Gleneagles Hotel:

"Jerry was in good shape when he arrived at Edinburgh Airport. He looked well and his handshake is as strong as ever. I gave him some Cuban cigars and we laughed at some old photographs of how we both looked 42 years ago! Jerry was whisked off in promoter Jim o'Neil's Rolls Royce  and when he arrived at Gleneagles they had two of those real fire signs like you see at some restaurants lit in his honour. A Scottish piper in  full highland dress including the kilt played a welcome tune - although it was not Great Balls of Fire - Jerry appreciated it. The band  travelled in a luxury coach that is normally used by Rangers Football Club.
"The hotel ballroom is already set up for the show on Friday and the sound is spectacularly good. The same sound crew will be at all dates. The Newcastle show will be televised so put you cat clothes on as Carl  Perkins used to sing."

Friday will be the kickoff of Jerry's tour in  the UK and the Netherlands. See the concerts section for all show details.

Five shows are now completely sold out: Newcastle, Blackpool, Amsterdam and both  shows in Gleneagles. Tickets are still available at Glasgow and Manchester. See concerts section for show  details. Source: Graham Knight.
