Jerry Lee Lewis Featured in Vanity Fair

Posted By on Tue, Oct 17, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Rockabilly legend Jerry Lee Lewis is profiled in the November issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

“The title of his much-anticipated studio album, Last Man Standing,” says VF, “couldn’t be more fitting as Jerry Lee Lewis reinforces his status as one of rock-and-roll’s founding fathers.” So begins the magazine’s last-page “Proust Questionnaire,” which includes such modest answers to their standard questions as: “What talent would you most like to have?”

“The one I’ve got!” says Jerry Lee.

“What is your most marked characteristic?”

“My left hand is dynamite!”

And “What is your motto?"

“Live and let live, but get keep outta my way!”

For more, including the Killer’s favorite hero, the greatest love of his life, and his greatest fear (none of them what you might expect, either), you'll have to pick up the issue. November VF isn't online yet.
