After paying everything and every one he kept 100 $ dollars for himself. With this amount he could only go fishing in a lake and drink water.

19.03.1964 -WHOLE LOTTA SHAKIN' GOING ON - MANCHESTER
19.03.1964.Granda TV show with the title Whole lotta shaking gong on. He sang 6 numbers and this number was the grand finale.
It was a very wild performance and a very long version with Jerry at the end on top of the grand piano shouting minutes and minutes SHAKE BABY SHAKE SHAKE BABY SHAKE ........ and almost throwing his tie in the public, but holding on to it because he said he only had one.
The public went totally crazy and they wanted more, more, more but Jerry got exhausted after all those minutes.
Jerry continued as long as he could but collasped in his dressing room afterwards.
The press called it the wildest Rock 'n roll show ever.
Musicians : Jerry Lee Lewis : piano + vocals, backed by the British group The Nashville Teens.
