Behind The Music: Jerry Lee Lewis (1998)
Jerry Lee’s Behind The Music had to focus on all the scandals and accidents and tragedies. But as I was working on the show, I remember constantly be struck by the magnitude of his talent. When you see the performances early in this film, particularly the show in London after his marriage to Maya had been revealed – his anarchic artistry is staggering. From the percussive force of his piano playing to the carnal howl of his vocals, Jerry Lee Lewis was one of the original creators of rock – and deserves deep respect for that. I’d like to think this show gave it to him.
