Baby Boomer Jerry Lee Ultimate Rock Machine

The mad man himself. When he slams the piano with his bare fists, the crowds in the nightclubs, the audiences in the theatres or the spectators in the football stadiums utter a war cry in unison that will put the native American indians to shame.

Jerry Lee Lewis (for the uninitiated, he's not Jerry Lewis the comedian) is the ultimate keyboard performer when man machine and piano machine combine. Forget descriptions and long explanations, just listen to him on YouTube!

And Peter Diaz (read March, 16th blog on Peter/October Cherries) our own Singapore musician, accompanied Jerry Lee on bass guitar when they toured Europe.Key in: jerry lee lewis rocks. Another baby boomer who influenced Singapore's 60s music? You bet.
