Jerry Lee Lewis’ 80th Birthday

Posted by  on 
September 22, 2015

While hanging out in London, I ended up going to the Jerry Lee Lewis’s 80th Birthday Farewell UK Tour thanks to my NY friend, Mark Preston, who happened to be in London for the weekend. I brought along another friend, Bruce, who is from London but now lives in NY, who happened to be here too.

As we were backstage, Ringo & Barbara, Olivia Harrison and Robert Plant were there too. Peter Asher played with Albert Lee. We all ended up on stage singing Happy Birthday to Jerry Lee. I was standing next to his niece who sang that night too.

Everyone in his band remembers the story about how John and I went to see Jerry Lee at The Roxy in LA in 1973. After the show, we went back and John got down on his knees and kissed Jerry Lee’s boots and said, “The King.”

Even though Jerry Lee needed help getting onstage, once he got behind the piano, he wailed away. Another surprise was seeing the fabulous guitar player, James Burton, another musician that John loved and admired. Keep on rockin’ Mr. Jerry Lee Lewis!

 The Kids Are Alright!  Eddie Money and his fabulous wife Laurie @MET. We were waiting for the rest of their kids so we can go and have lunch there. Eddie had to leave to meet DJs Ken Dashow and Maria Milito. Great afternoon!  Everyone seeking shelter from the downpour. The Moodies will come back to finish the set after the rain stops.
 Forgot the sunglasses and riding on the ferry to CT. Memories crossing the Long Island Sound with John years ago. My #TBT  At The Burger and Lobster restaurant at their new location @ 132 w 43rd St. I'm in heaven!  Here I am with Claudia Upton and Chris Palmerini. I even have a spare for tonight for Jones Beach's concert
 The second half of the day. Dinner with my friend Eve Brandstein. Great catching up...having a meal at The Duck House in Chinatown. Just had fabulous day all around with good friends!  My photo used in the HBO documentary "The Defiant Ones" about Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. I guess my passion for photography paid off!
