1935: Jerry Lee Lewis is born in Ferriday, Louisiana. He is one-quarter of Sun Records’ Million-Dollar Quartet (with Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins) and the only one who is still performing. Jerry Lee’s Daddy believes in him: He mortgages the family home so he can buy Jerry Lee, 10 years old, a piano. Now 80, Jerry Lee opens at the Julie Rogers Theater in Beaumont, Texas next week. Happy birthday, Killer!
