Last man standing is the name of a new CD by Jerry Lee Lewis. They played it when I visited a record shop today. I was hooked and bought it. The CD has 21 tracks, different guest on each of them. Among the guests are several of my favourites like Eric Clapton, BB King, Mick Jagger, John Fogerty and Buddy Guy.

There is history behind the name of the CD. Fifty years ago Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee was the home of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. Among these founding fathers of rock and roll, Jerry Lee is the “last man standing”.
