Jerry Lee Lewis Obituary TMZ; What Happened to Legendary Singer and Pianist, Jerry Lee Lewis?
Jerry Lee Lewis was an American singer, songwriter, and pianist. Nicknamed the Killer, he has been described as “rock n’ roll’s first great wild man and one of the most influential pianists of the 20th century.”
Media outlet, TMZ has earlier reported the death of the legendary singer on Wednesday.
TMZ has now retracted their story that originally said the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis had died. He is still alive.
“Earlier today we were told by someone claiming to be Lewis’ rep that he had passed. That turned out not to be the case. TMZ regrets the error.”
A pioneer of rock and roll and rockabilly music, Lewis made his first recordings in 1956 at Sun Records in Memphis. “Crazy Arms” sold 300,000 copies in the South, but it was his 1957 hit “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” that shot Lewis to fame worldwide. He followed this with the major hits “Great Balls of Fire”, “Breathless”, and “High School Confidential”.
However, his rock and roll career faltered in the wake of his marriage to Myra Gale Brown, his 13-year-old cousin.
