In this re-cast of our 2019 interview, host Nate Wilcox talks with author Joe Bonomo about the rise, fall and comeback of rockabilly icon Jerry Lee Lewis with a particular focus on his album “Live at the Star-Club.” They cover Jerry’s amazing early hits, his fall from grace, long years in the wilderness, how he came to record a live album at the German club the Beatles made famous, and the current debate about re-evaluating artists in light of the #metoo movement.
