I don't consider it to be well-written. I don't consider it to be well-organized. However, Jerry Lee Lewis: Lost and Found by Joe Bonomo is a must-read for anyone interested in early Rock and Roll history. Unlike his contemporaries, Jerry Lee Lewis was not financially successful in the United States. He was ostracized for marrying his 13-year-old second cousin when he was 22 years old. Lewis ended up moving to Europe, where he became very popular. He also became addicted to alcohol and pain killers, which led to many health issues later in life. Jerry Lee started out as a Rock and Roll icon, took a detour to Country Western music, then morphed back to rock. Known for "chasing skirts", he was married and divorced several times. To his fans, he was known as "The Killer". Some call him the "Father of Rock and Roll". Everyone is familiar with his great hits "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On", "Great Balls of Fire" and "Breathless". His style is unique and wild. The same could be said of his life. No one can deny that he had a great influence on the music of his day.
