“Mean Old Man” is a pretty fitting title, don’tcha think?
Amazon is offering the new single from Lewis here. Click it. It’s free. Help an old man out.
Jerry Lee Lewis, an original bad boy of rock-n-roll, sings a rock-a-country (that’s my term … but feel free to use it) tune that shows at once his age and his ability to make a song his own.
However, if you’re like me, whenever you hear any of these old-timers making seemingly relevant music, you think of the originator of that movement: the man in black himself, Johnny Cash. Everything else pales in comparison.
Of course, this is probably what Jerry Lee would say to that:
Yeah … whatever.
