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!

 Worth the wait! Ribs, Mac and cheese and crab cakes. Will get the name of this vendor later. DELICIOUS!!  Waiting for Giada Valenti to appear.  Ever since I tasted these Shishito peppers, I think at Nobu in Malibu, they've become one of my favorites at restaurants when they have them. I decided to try and make this at home with a simple dipping of soy sauce and sesame oil.
 Standing on line for the last day of Harlem EatUp with Lara. I'm glad it's a nice day.  Going to try my Mother's Day lipstick. Excited for the new lipsticks. Going to see The Dives.  At the Kristen A Carr Foundation event at Tribeca Grill. Yes, that is The Boss, Bruce on stage with Honorees Mickey and Larry Magid, Barbara Carr, Dave Marsh and Jon Landau.
 In Times Square around midnight...  My daughter Lara took me out to a lovely lunch and gave me these fabulous lipsticks by Bite. The card was so touching. Lara, you are a beautiful daughter. You light up my life.   Mike Peters and The Alarm playing at The TriBeCa Film Fest after the movie Dare To Be Different. The story about radio station WLIR
