Jerry Lee Lewis: 80 years old

The Killer turns 80 years of age – born September 29th 1935 (same year as Elvis). Being one of the first Rock’n’Roll stars he was also part of the early stages of music video evolution. In this clip we see him in his classic pose, by the piano and playing intensively on it, while singing in a loud voice. A performance and style that has become an icon in the history of Rock’n’Roll. Observe the simple effect of changing lighting.

This clip from 1969 is also a great piece from the rock archives. Gives you a picture of his personality.
