I have to share a story with you guys. Wall of Text, though.

So, I was flying home from my trip in Europe. It was a Northwest flight from Amsterdam to Memphis. As the plane was on final approach, I mentioned to the person sitting next to me that Sun Studios, where Jerry Lee recorded, should be somewhere under the plane right now. He replied, "I think he is on this plane." Of course, I think to myself, yeah right. After we got off the plane and were standing in line for customs, the same guys points out an old gentleman, and says,"Is that him?" Holy hell, it was! He was just sitting there in a corner waiting for his band to join up with him. I didn't hesitate. I walked up to him.

It went pretty much like this, not word for word, but close.

Me: Excuse me, sir. Are you Jerry Lee Lewis?

Jerry: Why yes I am.

Me: Sir, may I please shake your hand, you are one of my idols.

(we shake hands, at this point, my heart was pounding, and my knees were shaking)

Me:Your music is amazing, great balls of fire, high school confidential, i'm on fire, all are my favorites.

Jerry: Thank you very much.

Me: My dad and I play your music and it's just pure rock and roll.

Jerry: I bet there is a whole lotta shakin goin on.

(LOLs are had)

Me: Crazy Arms is one of the best songs ever written.

Jerry: Well it was of the first records I recorded, not released but just recorded.

Me: Sir, I don't want to impose. It has truly been an honor meeting you. Have a nice day.


This was the best ending of a great 2 month trip in Europe anyone could ask for.

EDIT: More about my Europe trip.
I went back to my home country, Slovakia, for two months. (Yes, I'm one of those dang foreigners) Although I stayed mostly in Slovakia. Me and my cousin went to London and Vienna. We also went to the mountains to do some hiking. But mostly I just ate food and ice cream for two months. My friend and I went to an air show, and a couple military museums. Also visited some castles and ruins. Also lots of family cookouts.

So you met him on the plane with the movies and the flying and LAAAAAAY-DDDEEEEE stewardesses?

sweet.

EDIT: in case anyone doesn't get it, it's a reference to Jerry Lewis, the comedian.
why am I explaining my joke? because no one has commented on it, and I found it quite funny, so it must be to high above everyone's head.

I disagree.

It would have been better if Jerry Lee Lewis gave you a handjob.

Anyway, that sounds amazing. Glad you were able to meet your idol. It seems like a truly unforgettable experience to me.

And a million pounds... a blow jay would also be nice.

Perhaps, but we're not discussing what would be nice and probable, we're talking perfection.

Oh, and a handjob is likely?

He's quite old now. He was actually sitting... in a wheelchair.

Didn't he marry his 14 year old cousin?


Yes he did. He lost a good deal of his fan base, though.

you see, it was the fifties. Conservative era. Hell, so many people thought he was devil and he played the devil's music. Also, he was the original bad boy of rock n roll. It wasn't like today. He married his 14 year old cousin, and people were repulsed.

Larry Williams was the bad boy of rock n' roll...

And Jerry Lee Lewis is/was a devout Christian and firmly believed that he, with his music, was leading both himself and his audiences to hell. I'm serious.

Aw, man. Now you ruined the story for me. I pictured him as a youngster. You did not tell us this.

I also have hairy butt cheeks, I once shaved a letter 'W' on each cheek, so that when I bent over it spelled WoW.
