Why Should I Drink Tonight? – September, 29th : Jerry Lee Lewis’ Birthday

jerry-lee-lewis“Are you still playing the devil’s music?”

“Yes, I am. But you know it’s strange, the same music that they kicked me out of school for is the same kind of music they play in their churches today. The difference is, I know I am playing for the devil and they don’t.”

What is there to write about Jerry Lee Lewis that hasn’t already been said. Started playing piano at age 9, was kicked out of school for playing the devil’s music, started drinking at age 15, recorded “Great Balls Of Fire”, married his 13 year old cousin, and was blackisted from radio.

That pretty much sums it up.

What to drink tonight? Listen to his “Drinkin’ Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee”, and see if you can figure it out.
