Man on Fire: Going to Hell with Jerry Lee Lewis and Dennis Quaid
Nick Kent, The Face, May 1989
HE WAS trying to be courteous but you could tell almost at once that being courteous wasn't really part of his nature. "Wahl, ah looks at it this-away, Kill-uh," he slurred. "There's only two they done it to this-away. There's your Al Jolson, they done 'im when he wuz still alive, and there's me, Jerry Lee Lewis, they doin' me now whilst ah'm still alive. So there's your two of us, yer two bonafide livin' legends o' all time! Now Adam, he was tellin' me t'other day somethin' about someone else (he pauses, snorts) some damn woman (second pause) Loretta Lynn or someone like that!... Hell she don't count!"
