Jerry Lee Lewis was born on September 29, 1935, in Ferriday, Louisiana. He began playing the piano at age 9, copying the styles of preachers and black musicians. He signed with Sun Records in 1956 and quickly became a star. He was inducted into the first class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986. Lewis spends much of his time-off at his ranch in Nesbit, Mississippi, where he is happily married to his wife Judith.
