Great Balls of Fire - Jerry Lee Lewis
Great balls of fire - it’s Jerry Lee Lewis & his 3rd wife Myra Gale Brown. Jerry is considered an early pioneer & wild-man of rock and roll during the 1950s. His career took a turn for the worse when he married his 13 year old cousin Myra (his 3rd of 7 wives). [ Original: Jerry Lee Lewis Myra Brown ]
Just a few of the performers:
- Beach Boys
- Marshall Chapman
- Steve Earle
- Hootie & the Blowfish (hey, it was 1996, and it was their hometown)
- Robert Earl Keen
- John Mellencamp
- Willie Nelson
- Son Volt
- Neil Young
BTW, feedback from Neil Young’s performance is still bouncing around Williams-Brice… it was the most violent thing I had witnessed there until Jadeveon Clowney arrived.
I’m generally non-plussed over autographs…
But, when one sneaks into a venue the day of the show and knocks on The Spaceman’s dressing room door and can’t think of anything to say because one never imagined Stringbean would actually open the door and say, “hello?” one sometimes ends up with an autograph.
One might even get the thing framed.
