Giants walk among us, or at least Jerry Lee Lewis still does. The 83-year-old singer-pianist is the sole surviving member of Sun Records’ Million Dollar Quartet — the impromptu all-star dream team that also featured Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley — and he’s virtually the only remaining direct link to the primal, feral intensity of authentic 1950s rock & roll, apart from Little Richard. There will come a day when desperate fans will lament that they never saw Lewis in person and will have to settle for some flimsy hologram or mere tribute imitation, so why miss the real thing while there’s still time? Due to Lewis’ age, his recent sets have been relatively short at about 10 songs per show, but the Louisiana native is still fiery as he pounds out his hits and covers of Chuck Berry and Roy Orbison alongside the occasional country lamentation.
