Jimmy Page was mentioned in an article about Jerry Lee Lewis in the Wall Street Journal of Wed., Sept. 8, 2010. It's a nice overview of Jerry's career. (Jimmy does not play on the new album).

Killer Poised to Strike Again


Mr. Lewis's new album "Mean Old Man" came out last week on Sept. 7th.

On Sept. 29, Mr. Lewis will be in Los Angeles, celebrating his 75th birthday.

From his earliest rock 'n' roll hits in the late 1950s, Mr. Lewis's wild streak and piano-pounding performances quickly came to define rock's unhinged image. John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Elton John and virtually every major rock act since has borrowed from Mr. Lewis's spring-loaded style. An original Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee in 1986, the high-strung, hell-raising boogie-woogie country shouter also is the father of rebel-rock and country-R&B.

Upon meeting Mr. Lewis, what you notice first are his ink-black gunslinger eyes that seem to be waiting on you to draw. His handshake is hard and strong, as though he's been working with tools all his life rather than a piano.
