On Saturday, September 26th, Jerry Lee Lewis will celebrate his 80th birthday at the Jerry Lee Lewis Café & Honky Tonk on 310 Beale Street. What began as a birthday kick off on September 7th at London’s Palladium, with Ringo Starr and Robert Plant serenading the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis with “Happy Birthday,” now returns to Jerry Lee Lewis’ hometown for a grand-piano-sized birthday celebration! The doors at Jerry Lee Lewis’ Café & Honky Tonk will open at 2:00 p.m., and the celebration continues into the night.

Joining Jerry Lee Lewis’ Café & Honky Tonk in the celebration are the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, located at Third and Beale, and the Memphis Music Hall of Fame, located at Second and Beale, both of which owe much of their stories to “The Killer,” and his iconic role in the birth of rock ‘n’ roll. check out a classic Jerry Lee video below. 

More like a Whole Lotta Head Banging if you ask me...
