JERRY LEE LEWIS was stunned when he met JOHN LENNON in the 1970s - because the BEATLES star dropped to his knees and kissed the rock legend's feet.
Lennon credited piano great Lewis with paving the way for bands like the Fab Four, and insisted on thanking his idol when they met backstage at iconic Los Angeles concert venue The Roxy during the Beatles' heyday.
In a new interview with GQ magazine, Lewis recalls, "He kissed my feet. I had no idea he was going to do that. My boy was there, Junior. He said, 'Dad, dad, is that John Lennon?'
"I said, 'Yes it is John Lennon.' He done (sic) it, and he said, 'I just wanted you to know you are the man who made it possible for me to be a star in rock 'n' roll music.'
"I just kind of froze. Nobody has ever done that."

I think that was great that john did that because Jerry Lee Lewis is the best. I have never met the Killer and seen him in person yet but hopefully I will in May when I get to Memphis. Anything he does is fantastic. I think he is the best paino player there ever will be and his singing in great. Good luck killer.

I saw Jerry Lee lewis at Wembley in 1972 and at Ipswich in the 1980s. Electrifing performanes so it justifies the reason why Jonh lennon did that.Rock n Roll was the roots to The Beatles music.Jerry have alot to do with their story.
