I was at that show. The highlight was when he jumped up on the piano bench and ran the keyboard with his elbows. He has a couple cans of Stroh’s there.

Jerry Lee´s first time in London was probably 4/10/1958 on an Alan Freed at the old London Arena. Also on the bill; Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Larry Williams, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Sam Taylor and many more….not sure how many of these made it across the border for the short Canuck portion of the tour.
He didn´t drink the cans of Strohs althought I think he did open one. At the end of the show, he tossed a full one out into the crowd.



Many Thanks to:
