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!

 Trying out my #MingTsai Air Fryer. I made some truffle salted, rosemary fries for some comfort food on this nor'easter day!  What a night of music at the Iridium for Holly Goldrich's For The Love of 48th St. Here I am with 2 friends who performed tonight...Christine Ohlman and Jimmy Kunes.  My dinner tonight...tons of veggies with some bean thread noodles. It will be yummy!
 It was a fun night of seeing old friends and making new ones. Tom Bergeron, comedian Vince August and I were on the live podcast of "Tony Perkins Show featuring Gary Stein"...should be available soon free on iTunes.  So hungry...made lentil soup. My first time. I hope it taste good.  The other side of Lara's head....
 Now that my chips are cooked, I'm ready to sit down and enjoy these potatoes and watch #TheGrammys with host #JamesCorden. I might have to make more.  The end result...now I'm hungry!  After pic of Lara's hair ordeal!
