Only Jerry Lee is left now. Love him or hate him, Jerry Lee Lewis is one of the greatest musicians in rock and roll history, and without his influence, music would be very different than it is today. That's why so many artists today pay homage to Jerry Lee as an important influence, and why so many line up for the chance to record with him to this day.

Jerry Lee, Carl Perkins, Elvis, and Johnny Cash
He's one of our last remaining links to that period when rock and roll was in its infancy, and a few guys in Memphis took a little country, a little blues, a little gospel, and a little boogie woogie, put it all together, and rocked the world. I shudder to think what music might be like if it weren't for Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley (would be still be do-wopping?).
