"The Killer" cousin of Mickey Gilley and Jimmy Swaggart but as he said(as far as I can remember) "I'm the only one in the family with any real talent"

And he lives on. Is there any more eloquent testament to living life on a Hell-bound path than The Killer's? They're all gone: The King, Johnny Cash, Charlie Rich, Carl Perkins, Charlie Feathers, Sam Phillips himself (okay, Sonny Burgess and Billy Lee Riley and Jack Clement are still out there). And Jerry Lee, who everybody thought would be the first to go, remians.

Astonishing.

Yeah, but Keith Moon is still dead, no? ;)

...going beyond the Sun artists, Jerry Lee, Bo Diddley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry are all that remain of the seminal, big-time Rock 'n Roll names of the fifties (I'll throw Ike Turner in there too...another hell raiser!)
