    It looks like Jerry Lee is out of Rehab after the stroke and now doing recovery at home. He’s looking forward to doing a Gospel album in the coming months. I’m sure his recent incident will influence it and expect nothing but the best from the killer.

    It’s amazing the man is still alive. Truly. What a remarkable talent.

    It's like he's blazing that trail for Keef

    Glad Killer is on the mend, strokes are nasty!

    I've seen Jerry Lee twice. The first time he was brilliant, the second was a disaster. I guess when you're him you're allowed that!

    Best Wishes on his recovery!

    Was lucky enough to meet the man in his dressing room in 2016.

    He was very sweet... I guess he's mellowed with old age. :)

    I've seen him perform once. Wasn't in his best shape anymore, had back problems I think, but his attitude was great. Jerry Lee's great!

    I could never get past him marrying a 13 year old when he was 22.

    He was 23. Right or wrong they were married 13 years, had two children and lost a three year old. That’s longer and likely they went through more than most new marriages today, including the publicity of what the marriage likely brought them. Their marriage likely haunts them today and for what is essentially a lifetime. Still, I understand why some may not be able to move past it. I guess I’m a lucky one, as he wrote and plays great music.

    Amen brother!
    I listened to an interview with one of his children of that marriage, and she seems fine with it!

    One of the best tracks off of maybe the best live album recorded by a mortal:

    If I could play piano and choose any style... hands down it would be Jerry Lee.

    Whatever Jerry Lee's sins, I sympathize with a stroke. Some people never recover. I was fortunate to recover from mine, but I know plenty of people who are permanently marked. I will pray for him.
