ZUM TOD DES US-AMERIKANISCHEN ROCK'N'ROLL- UND COUNTRY-PIANISTEN UND -SÄNGERS JERRY LEE LEWIS

ZUM TOD DES US-AMERIKANISCHEN ROCK'N'ROLL- UND COUNTRY-PIANISTEN UND -SÄNGERS JERRY LEE LEWIS

28.10.2022 Der am 29. September 1935 in Ferriday (Louisiana) geborene US-amerikanische Rock-'n'-Roll- und Country-Musiker und -Sänger Jerry Lee Lewis (Bild) ist am 28. Oktober 2022 in DeSoto County (Mississippi) gestorben. "Er wurde vor allem durch sein aggressives Klavierspiel und seine legendäre Bühnenpräsenz bekannt. In den 1950er-Jahren hatte er mit 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On', 'Great Balls of Fire' und 'Breathless' einige bedeutende Hits im Rock-'n'-Roll-Genre. Nach einem Skandal gegen Ende des Jahrzehnts konzentrierte er sich verstärkt auf Country-Musik, mit der er sich in den 1960er- und 1970er-Jahren an die Spitze der Country-Charts hocharbeitete." (*)


Jerry Lee Lewis, perhaps the last true, great icon of the birth of rock ‘n’ roll, whose marriage of blues, gospel, country, honky-tonk and raw, pounding stage performances so threatened a young Elvis Presley that it made him cry, has died.

He was there at the beginning, with Elvis, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, and the rest, and watched them fade away one by one till it was him alone to bear witness, and sing of the birth of rock ‘n’ roll.

“Who would have thought,” he said, near the end of his days, “it would be me?”

Goodness gracious, great balls of fire!

Jerry Lee Lewis, Influential and Condemned Rock & Roll Pioneer, Dead at 87

"The Killer" embodied rock rebellion with songs like "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and "Great Balls of Fire," but drew widespread outrage for marrying his 13-year-old cousin in 1957.

The hell-raising, larger-than-life rock ‘n’ roll pioneer and latter-day country star

Lewis — an inaugural inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, a 2005 recipient of a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award and, at the age of 86, a 2022 inductee of the Country Music Hall of Fame — was a powerhouse keyboardist, mercurial vocalist and rampaging, unpredictable showman who could master virtually any song, be it rock ‘n’ roll, country, R&B, gospel or pop.

With his pounding piano, his impassioned vocals and his incendiary performing style, Mr. Lewis lived up to his nickname, the Killer.

Rock 'n' roll's first great wild man

Sam Philips, the founder of Sun Records — and the producer who also discovered Elvis, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Roy Orbison — called Lewis "the most talented man I ever worked with, black or white ... one of the most talented human beings to walk God's earth." But almost as quickly as his star ascended, his career collapsed, after he married his 13-year-old cousin in 1958 — mere months after his first hit song was issued.

"I’ve lived my life to the fullest and I had a good time doin’ it."

In October, Lewis was inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame but was unable to attend the ceremony because he was ill with the flu, according to a statement posted to his social media.

Muere Jerry Lee Lewis, la última leyenda de la edad dorada del ‘rock and roll’

A Jerry Lee Lewis le apodaban elocuentemente The Killer (El Asesino), por su temperamento colérico y fiereza interpretativa, se convirtió en pionero e icono del rock and roll, rivalizó en la década de los cincuenta con toda aquella gloriosa avanzadilla de la nueva música del diablo –Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins–, los sobrevivió a todos y siguió impartiendo lecciones de furia hasta bien entrado en la condición de octogenario.

Il jouait du piano debout - Mort de Jerry Lee Lewis, extinction des feux

Jerry Lee Lewis est mort. C’est un peu comme d’écrire «Godzilla a eu un accident de voiture», ça n’a aucun sens. Jerry Lee Lewis, c’était techniquement celui qui tuait. «The Killer», son surnom officiel depuis toujours ou presque. Celui qui semait mort, feu, destruction partout autour de lui. Le sauvage originel. Le cyclone gominé. Hannibal Lecter avec un piano. Plus clairement, un des piliers fondamentaux du rock’n’roll.

Jerry Lee Lewis, pianiste au jeu infernal et légende du rock, est mort

Sa légende de toxicomane, de fou d’armes à feu, avait souvent pris le pas sur celle de musicien, d’inventeur. Les deux sont en fait inséparables. Le «Killer», comme il était surnommé, est mort le 28 octobre, à l’âge de 87 ans.

Der Mann mit den "Balls" aus Fire

Jerry Lee Lewis war der letzte Überlebende jener Giganten, die in den Fünfzigerjahren den Rock’n’Roll erfanden – die wichtigste und einzige wirklich weltumstürzende kulturelle Bewegung des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Matthias Heine

Lewis galt als einer der einflussreichsten Künstler der Musikgeschichte: "Elvis war der Grösste", sagte Jerry Lee gern. "Ich war der Beste."
