Jerry Lewis is not known for musical ventures. (The comedic actor Jerry Lewis, not Jerry Lee Lewis, hotshot proofreader.) He did release at least one LP (Jerry Lewis Sings), but I haven't heard it. But after seeing the clip below, I'm convinced. He coulda been a contender. As Chuck Berry wrote in "Little Queenie", if it's a rocker, I'll admit it, and this one, though short, is. Then again, my kind of rockers include nut cases of every type. If I have room on my plate for the Legendary Stardust Cowboy or Hasil Adkins, why not an actor? I don't give a shit what your day job is. If you can wig out for a couple minutes, that's good enough.

Bonus beat:
Jed Clampett - Oh, Baby, Yeah Baby at YouTube Rockin' the Danelctro twin neck.
