Hellfire : The Jerry Lee Lewis Story, Paperback Book

Hellfire : The Jerry Lee Lewis Story Paperback

Description

The dramatic and tormented life of Jerry Lee Lewis is the most fabled in rock 'n' roll history.

Hellfire is a wild, riveting, and beautifully written biography that received universal acclaim on its original publication and is now an American classic.

Born in Louisiana to a family legacy of great courage and greater madness, Jerry Lee was torn throughout his life between a harsh Pentecostal God and the Devil of alcohol, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

At twenty-one he recorded 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On', which propelled him to stardom.

Almost immediately, news of his marriage to his thirteen-year-old cousin all but destroyed his career.

Over the next twenty years, Jerry Lee, ever indomitable and ever wild, would rise again as a country star, and then lose it all again to his own inner demons.

Hellfire is a brilliant, audacious journey into the soul of a rock 'n' roll legend, and into the soul of rock 'n' roll itself.
