There are a handful of artists that I first started listening to as a very small boy. It was based on the records that my mom had

Those were the artists and songs that I had instilled in me from the beginning. And that's what I still use today as a foundation for my craft.

There were records from six different artists that I pulled off to the side. In future stories I will identify the other five.

But today, it's Jerry Lee Lewis that we will focus on. It was his songs from the 60's, when he transitioned into country music, that I listened closely to and developed a taste for.

It was amazing to hear how good of a piano player he was and how incredible and unique his singing was. It naturally sparked my interest into his 50's rock recordings as well.

Here's Jerry Lee in 1983 paying tribute to his first ever recording at Sun Records:
