Publisher's note: I have initiated this new segment on BCN, where I determine the Best Music Ever ... and, 'with a little help from my friends'. I do this from my opinion, for what that is worth, where I will measure the best music that I am familiar with.
I do this for two reasons: 1) I want to expose the best music that I know to the rest of us. 2) Popular Music today may be the very worst it has ever been, and that is saying much, since I lived through Disco.

As previously mentioned, there will be others who share their favorites with our BCN readers, in particular here, Bobby Tony.
"The Killer" with the long blond hair, don't give a damn attitude and a honky-tonk piano shakes up the music business.
He was not the original Rebel Without a Cause but he turned the music world upside down. The old videos do not do justice to an actual performance by Jerry Lee but that is about all we have.
A side note, I served on Jury Duty in Dekalb County some time in 1976 with his former wife/cousin who was a Real Estate Broker in Atlanta. She said he was just as wild in private as he was on stage. He also still left her tickets at will call anytime he played in the Atlanta Area.
