HELLFIRE By NICK TOSCHES Foreword by GREIL MARCUS Paperback 276 pages, photos "Nick Tosches's Hellfire is the finest book ever written about a rock n' roll performer, nothing else comes close. But that is hardly all it is. Sooner or later, Hellfire will be recognized as an American classic" --Greil Marcus, from the Foreward The dramatic and tormented life of Jerry Lee Lewis is the most fabled in rock n' roll history. Hellfire is a wild, riveting, and beautifully written biography that received universal acclaim on its original publication and remains one of the most remarkable biographies ever written. Born in Louisiana to a family legacy of great courage and greater madness, Jerry Lee was torn throughout his life between a harsh Pentecostal God and the Devil of alcohol, drugs, and rock n' roll. He began performing publicly at fourteen, and at twenty-one he recorded "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," which propelled him to stardom. "Quite simply the best rock and roll biography ever written." --Rolling Stone "The book is undeniably a feat-turning a sordid, tormented life into a rousing piece of poetic expressionism."
