American Master: Jerry Lee Lewis

By malcolm Published: September 21, 2007

Alright, anyone who didn't get enough of "The Killer" when he closed the Chrissie Hynde and Friends concert at the Civic has another chance to pay homage to a rock n roll original.
The Rock Hall will be hosting its 12th Annual American Music Masters series and this year's honoree (the first living one, by the way) is Jerry Lee Lewis.

There will be a week's worth of American Master events, but the big shindig goes down on Saturday, Nov. 10 at The Playhouse Square when a bunch of artists will gather to pay tribute to Jerry Lee.
Who?
Ready?
OK!
ON the bill will are George Thorogood, Shelby Lynne; Kris Kristofferson; Terry Adams from NRBQ; Wanda Jackson; Narvel Felts; Billy Lee Riley; Cowboy Jack Clement; and Jason D. Williams and the man himself JERRY LEE LEWIS!

But wait!
There's more!

The program will also feature appearances by Jerry Lee Lewis's cousin the Reverend Jimmy Swaggart and sister Linda Gail Lewis.

Come On! Jimmy Frickin' Swaggart's coming to Cleveland?
Awesome.
Remember this?

Aaahh, what a load of crap.

Also he's willing to murder a gay man and then lie to his Lord and Savior.

Aaah, good times, good times.

Sure, Swaggart and his whoring and hating are fun but he's got nothing on the legendary Dr. Gene Scott, whom I grew up watching. Here Dr. Scott has a message for the people of Australia who admonished him for cursing on air. He did not take criticism well.

Aaah, memories. Can you tell I just learned how to embed videos in my ramblings?

Where was I?

Oh Yeah, the concert will take place on Saturday, November 10 at 8 p.m. at Playhouse Square's State Theater. Tickets are already on sale at the low, low price of $30, $40 and $50 and can be purchased through tickets.com and at the Playhouse Square box office or by calling (216) 241-6000.

NOW GET ON THE TELEPHONE!
