Jerry Lee Lewis: The Gospel According to Jerry Lee

Nick Tosches, Country Music, October 1979

DRESSED LIKE A side-street gambler from the days when chrome was chrome, Jerry Lee Lewis sits in the dressing-room of the Palomino Club, holding loosely in his lap a half-drained quart of Seagram's like the unglowing scepter of an ancient fading kingship.

Total word count of piece: 1986
