4.03.1986 - KEEP MY MOTOR RUNNING - SAN FRANCISCO
4.03.1986. This is the only date I find in San francisco in 1986, so I think this is the date.
The place is The Stone , San Francisco, California.
Musicians : Jerry Lee Lewis : piano + vocals, Buddy Harmon : drums, Kenny Lovelace : leadguitar, Butch baker : guitar. I don't hear an organ, at that time Moetta Stuart played organ in Jerry's band.
HERUNDER A LIVE AUDO-VIDEO OF KEEP MY MOTOR RUNNING. JERRY STOPS THE SONG ABRUPT BEFORE THE END. THE (BAD) PHOTO THAT GOES WITH THE VIDEO IS NOT FROM 86, BUT MUCH LATER.
15.09.1981 - 39 AND HOLDING - ROCKIN' MY LIFE AWAY- INTERVIEW
15.09.1981. TELEVISION PERFORMANCE FOR THE TOMORROW SHOW, NASHVILLE TENNESSEE.(THE HOST SAYS IT'S IN NEW YORK).
THERE ALSO A SHORT INTERVIEW WITH JERRY LEE.
JERRY LEE LEWIS WAS HOSPITALIZED ON 30 JUNE 1981 WITH A BLEEDING ULCER AND A PERFORATED STOMACH. HE WENT ONLY BACK ON THE ROAD ON 3 OCTOBER 1981. IT LOOKS LIKE THIS IS HIS FIRST APPEARANCE IN PUBLIC AFTER HIS HOSPITALISATION.
MUSICIANS : I HEAR KENNY LOCEVELACE ON GUITAR AND FIDDLE, JOEL SHOEMAKER ON LEAD GUITAR. THE OTHERS ONES BASS AND DRUMS I DON'T RECOGNIZE.
25.11.1977 - WHOLE LOTTA SHAKING WITH BETTE MIDDLER
25.11.1977. Whole lotta shaking going, duet with Bette (The rose) Middler.
Jerry was a guest on The Rolling Stone Special, broadcasted on 25.11.1977 but, probably, taped earlier in october 1977.
The channel was HBO TV.
The band behind Jerry Lee and Bette is seemingly a Studio- or a theatre band with a conductor shaking a stick and even trumpets in it . I don't even recognize Kenny Lovelace, I don't think he is playing with the band.
Musicians : Jerry Lee Lewis : piano +vocals, Bette Middler : vocal-duet, backing : studio band.
25.02.1977. Jerry played a great show in Manchester at the Belle Vue theatre.
Here you see Jerry giving a short interview at the airport at the start of his European appearance in London and taking place in a limousine accompanied by motorcycles to drive him to his hotel or, maybe, the show.
He looks good and healthy but reserved and a bit shy to tell something wrong. He states that he always did country and that the flip side sides of his great hits were all country.
20.10.1973. THIS IS THE 3TH APPEARANCE ON THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL TELEVISION SHOW, BURBANK CA.
ALSO THE NEXT DAY THEY CAPTURED SONGS IN BURBANK. THE SHOW WAS BROADCOASTED 11 NOVEMBER 1973.

5.08.1972 - LONDON ROCK 'N ROLL SHOW - PUBLIC AND A BIT OF GREAT BALLS OF FIRE
5.08.1972. Jerry played this show with Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and Bill Haley. There were a lot of openers and some of them you can can see in this footage video.

14 MAY 1972 - BRUSSELS - LIVE AUDIO ONLY - HONEY HUSH
1972 . BRUSSELS VORST NATIONAAL. THIS WAS THE VERY FIRST TIME I SAW A LIVE PERFORMANCE BY JERRY LEE LEWIS.
I HAD A FEW RECORDS OF HIM WITH MOST COUNTRY TUNES, NOT MUCH ROCK'N ROLL. MY WIFE GRETA AND ME SAW HIM IN BRUSSELS GIVING A ROCK 'N ROLL SHOW LIKE WE NEVER HAD SEEN BEFORE. THE AUDIANCE (5000) WENT TOTALLY CRAZY AND NOT ONLY THE GIRLS AND WOMEN WERE SCREAMING, BUT THE MEN LOST THEIR HEAD AND WENT TOTALLY CRAZY. THIS I HAD NEVER SEEN AND HEARTH BEFORE IN MY WHOLE LIFE.HE WAS WEARING A BEARD THAT PERIOD BECAUSE HE HAD TO APPEAR IN A BROADWAY SHOW "CATCH MY SOUL".
FROM THEN ON I BECAME A COMPLETE 100 % JERRY LEE LEWIS FAN.
