The father of Rock'n'Roll is back and Kicks Ass! In a time when one-hit wonders come and go, the winners are more and more often the so-called'old stars'. They come back and look anything but old, often they are not only celebrated back by their traditional fans, but also win new ones.
Now the'bad old man' of Rock'n'Roll, also called'The Killer', is back. Mean Old Man' could mean a renaissance for Jerry Lee Lewis like Johnny Cash did in his lifetime! On his comeback he gathers around him a breathtaking group of sidemen: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Kid Rock, Solomon Burke, Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, John Fogerty, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Nils Lofgren, Willie Nelson, Ringo Starr and, and, and.
Cool and hung, the old master presents himself here, with a timelessly modern mixture of rock, R'n'B and country. After his 2006 predecessor'Last Man Standing', which sold over 112 million copies worldwide and was also successful in Germany, it is now: Welcome back, villain!
