Ultimate Jerry Lee Lewis clip

I always get people asking me why I love Jerry Lee Lewis so much and I end up boring them about his songs, his life story, the fact that he plays anything from rock 'n' roll to country to dixieland, blah, blah, blah. Two minutes ago I found my future answer. I'm going to send them this youTube clip and they can see for themselves.

It's got everything I loe about the Killer. The playing is great, but the arrogant sneer, the laugh, the general mayhem, it's all here. It's nearly six minutes of his arrival (dig the short change he gives the so-called celebrity), a mad backstage interview and a couple of song clips from Bourges, 1987. How many g's in swagger?
