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!

 Saying hello to former ABC NY Meteorologist, Bill Evans, @WPLJReunion last night. He’s now @WLNG 92FM out in the Hamptons.  Dessert: Shaved Ice @PigandKhao on the lower east side with @thelaravee, Christopher Singh and Maria Singh. So full...  Last night @irvingplaza in NYC, I went to see Mike Peters and The Alarm with opening act Ryan Hamilton, who was fun to watch as a one man band. He had the audience in his corner. Mike and his band came out blazing. Everyone sang with Mike all night. Just a fab night all around. My son was born during the making of the Change album. So it was a great reunion. #TheAlarm #theryanhamilton
 @chaseedwardsgallery ... come by if you want something to do June 15th.  A quick catch up with Ashley Davie before he headed back to Birmingham. Have to make the trip longer next time and I’m glad he got to see The Met exhibit Play It Loud.  What a great surprise to run into Debora Francis while I was having a meeting with Hillary @duggalnyc to discuss my upcoming photo show in Bridgehampton.
 Pinball Wizard - The Who with full orchestra. #TheWho #MSG  A break for an easy afternoon lunch to catch up.  In mid-town NYC with Andrew Loog Oldham and his lovely wife, Esther.
