Jerry Lee Lewis’ 80th Birthday

Posted by  on

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 chef, Christopher, made the dinner last night with the help from his sous chef, his girlfriend and my daughter, Lara. Delicious!  Maria (Nick’s mom and soon to be mom-in-law to Melanie), Lara, Melanie and me at Thanksgiving Dinner tonight. Nick cooked an amazing dinner. Ate too much!  I was so happy to run into Leslie Ann Jones. She is one of my favorite people in the recording industry. She is a multi-Grammy winning engineer and also is Director of Music and Scoring at Skywalker Sound.
 I’ve never found these in my grocery stores in NY. These were on the shelf in a store in Liverpool. Hmmm  Visiting my favorite pet, Gemini. She had a lot to tell me today!  So good to run into guitarist June Millington (from the group Fanny.)
 Always knew my daughter had flair...she loves her cosplay to this day!  Celebrating my birthday week with going to a T-Rex Tribute show. Here I am with organizer Joe Hurley and Rolan Bolan, Marc’s son, last night. Good to see them both.  At the AES Convention, I always want to see my favorite friends and here is my long time friend, Piers Plaskitt (CEO of Solid State Logic), His daughter Paige Plaskitt and also Billy Amendola (Modern Drummer magazine.)
