didn't I! Yes, no doubt.
He walked on stage and stood for some of his songs, Mainly, he sat in a chair and told us his life story.
|For the 2nd half,|
he came out in his
legendary yellow jacket!
He included his cousins...Jerry Lee Lewis and The Reverend Jimmy Swaggert. "I am the youngest and my wife says I am the best looking:)"...yes, the grin is still there. And...best of all, his voice was a strong as ever. He cannot play the piano for which he was so famous...he told us he couldn't 'hit the licks'. He has a number of keyboardist's that make up for it. He was awesome as were his back-up's who have credentials of their own.
He closed the show with 'Stand by Me'!
No doubt he will be standing a long time
Gilley's in Pasadena, Texas, outside of Houston. To tell the truth, I can't remember if I saw him there or not. I raised my hand when they asked if I had been there and seen him.

Here's your chance to listen to his music....
