Jerry Lee Lewis - Vienna

Jerry Lee Lewis in Vienna. The man, the legend and just a few feet away from my position. This was one of those concerts where you'll see me walking up and down before the event, not really nervous, but in a way full of expectation and respect. Somehow i tought, we're going to shoot from the distance, but Jerry let us close, directly in front of him. Actually, the crowds were seating, only a few standings were left for those at the far end of the hall. As soon as he came to the stage, full of energy, smiling, everyone stood up and cheered him big time. His little smile, face expression and a small wave to the crowds said it all...the passion is still there after all the years and not so happy moments for him.

We had normal working conditions, but taking a picture of the piano man is always tricky. Most of the time they'll look down and play, so catching the other moments is importaint. Luckily Jerry Lee talked a bit and even looked at us as if he said, hey, i see you :) So cool and hearing Great balls of fire from Lewis himself made my day complete :)

Sašo..izvedel sem iz raznih najav, konkretno pa sem to najprej videl na nekem posterju sredi dunaja, na enem mostu med koncertom madonne :)

Organizirano je itak bilo, ce pa mislis prevoz in to pa ne vem..najbrz je bil se kdo iz Slovenije, ampak jaz se ponavadi na delo spravim v lastni reziji, ne hodim z avtobusi in tko...

Poglej na njegovo spletno stran, tam sigurno kaj pise..ceprav mislim, da kaj veliko v blizini ni vec...ti starejsi glasbeniki ne igrajo ravno zelo veliko koncertov na turneji..

Hvala za info

Lee had a big scandal when Lee Lewis was still under contract with Sun Records, and kept recording, regularly releasing singles!! but I think that he was a great musician!
