Linda Gail Lewis
BILLY Geraghty carries the stamp of approval of Linda Gail Lewis for his performance as one of the greatest rock n rollers of all time - the Hell raising firebrand Jerry Lee Lewis.
"Billy is the only person in the world who can play my brother," said Jerry Lee's sister, having witnessed his tribute turn in London. In February 2012, they toured the UK together in the long running show ‘Rocking on Heavens Door’.
Billy will never forget that first meeting with Linda Gail. "She told me, 'Jerry Lee's gonna have to meet you, because he's gonna wanna shoot you … you're too damn close to him'!" he says.
He did indeed go on to encounter the legendary American rock'n'roller, who carried the nickname of The Killer even in his schooldays in Ferriday, Louisiana. "Linda Gail took me backstage to meet him at the London Docklands Arena, and he still has this awesome presence about him. I was petrified, I was about to meet the ‘Last Man Standing ‘ When I told him I was going to play him in a show about his life.. There was a long pause, and then he shook my hand and said
'That's a hell of a job for anyone to take on. Boy!’
