    There really were two Jerry Lee Lewises; the rock 'n' roll Lewis of the 1950's, and the country music performer of the 60's.

    Obviously, his influence on rock music was great; a lot of British Invasion groups (Beatles, Stones, etc.) either covered his songs, or incorporated his style of piano into their records.

    His influence on country music was almost as profound; one could consider him the godfather of the Outlaw Country movement of the 70's (Waylon Jennings, David Allen Coe., etc), as much for his attitude as his music.
