Jerry Lee ‘The Killer’ Lewis was a very successful Louisiana born rock’n’roll pianist and singer who, like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins, recorded for Sam Phillips in Memphis. In 1957 he married his 13 year-old first-cousin-once-removed, Myra Gale Brown, and brought her with him to England for a tour. Big mistake. The British press got hold of the story and that was pretty well the end of Lewis’ career both here and in America until a revival in the mid-1960’s. The marriage was the third of seven for Lewis, but it did last 14 years.
