Editorial Reviews

On the heels of his landmark recording "Last Man Standing", Jerry Lee Lewis speaks candidly about his 50-year recording career, and, for the first time, demonstrates the piano style that defined rock-n-roll. On "Killer Piano", Jerry discusses his youth and career, reminisces with his family, and demonstrates many of his favorite rock-and-roll and country songs. Plus, the DVD is hosted by Linda Gail Lewis and features a complete live concert with Jerry's band at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. Also included is historic footage from Jerry's first appearance on the Steve Allen show, rare family photos, and printable sheet music transcriptions that pianists can use to study and learn Jerry's pivotal style. See Jerry Perform And Demonstrate: Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On, Great Balls Of Fire, Over The Rainbow, You Belong To Me, Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee, Touchin' Home, On One Will Ever Know, Mexicalli Rose, Down The Line, You Win Again. Special Features: DVD-ROM, the complete video formatted for your computer or iPOD; Interview with Cecil Harrelson, Jerry's life-long friend and business manager; Interview with Roland Janes, original Sun Records session guitarist and engineer; Linda Gail Lewis demonstrating Jerry's "Rock And Roll Invention".

Format: DVD
Hitting radio and TV (Steve Allen Show) in 1957 with "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and "Great Balls of Fire," Lewis's maniacal energy shocked a nation. Jerry Lee was insanely off the scale when it came to physical movement, a feat difficult to achieve when your instrument is an immovable piano!

This hormone-exuding, piano-pounding wild man would later release an album called "The Greatest Live Show on Earth"--a title that indeed had some justification. Few artists lived with more abandon and fewer were as talented as Jerry Lee. Lewis has lived a life of excess, and we're fortunate to still have him (2008).

The DVD opens with background on Jerry's start with Sun Records (at the same time as Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash). At the 6 minute mark, the DVD peaks in energy with archival footage of his first television appearance. Unfortunately, the footage is abruptly cut just when Lewis, with arms flailing and hair flopping, begins his piano solo--a disappointment to his piano fans.

Jerry Lee is interviewed primarily by his adoring sister, Linda Gail Lewis--12 years his junior. Jerry discusses his life and music for a few minutes before he performs each of 10 songs, solo. A camera from above shows the full keyboard (thank you!), and his fingering is well presented. Then, Jerry performs the same song with a backup group at a Las Vegas concert.

This DVD has to be accepted for what it is--a relaxed interview with a rock pioneer, and a unique opportunity to watch his keyboard work. This DVD is not likely to win new fans and has less than 60 seconds of archival footage from his more-energetic past. But, it has its rewards for Lewis fans like myself.

This is going to be very biased because Jerry Lee Lewis and his sister, who interviews him in this DVD, are friends of mine for many years. This is an excellent interview and very intimate discussion in which Jerry opens up and tells about his start and shows how he plays. The camera angles give keyboard enthusiasts a view of his hands never seen before. The DVD extras include print-outs of music sheets. Well worth any piano player's while to own this and definitely belongs in the collection of EVERY Jerry Lee Lewis fan, and rock and roll lover.

If you are a true Jerry Lee Lewis fan you will love this. It is an interview format with performances included. If you're not a real fan you might find this boring.

Very interesting for all JLL fans; shows some live footage, but also demonstrates JLL's style of piano playing and gives some insight into his career/family stories, told by JLL/his sister/daughter/and buddies. Recorded approx. 2006/2007

Jerry Lee tells it like it is here. Also you can see the position of his hands on the piano keyboard, so if you are inclined to copy his style of playing, you may do that.
