Legendary Rock and Roll icon Jerry Lee Lewis, nicknamed “The Killer,” recently suffered a stroke in late February. Since the news broke about his health scare, fans have been greatly concerned about his wellbeing.
Lewis, 83, has been in the music industry since 1954. Throughout his career, he has had great success with his rock and roll music. Some of his most notable accomplishments include being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986 and making his best-selling album “Last Man Standing.”
The initial statement posted on Lewis' Facebook page stated:
"Last night, Jerry Lee Lewis suffered a minor stroke. He is with his family, recuperating in Memphis and the doctors expect a full recovery. The Killer looks forward to getting back into the studio soon to record a Gospel record and on the road performing live for his fans.
“His family requests privacy at this time. Well wishes and prayers are greatly appreciated."
Fortunately, Lewis is expected to make a full recovery, according to a newly-released statement from Lewis' doctor. According to Fox News, the rock and roll star canceled his upcoming shows to focus on his recovery. However, he is expected to start performing again in a few months.
“Jerry Lee Lewis is expected to fully recover with aggressive and intensive rehab,” Dr. Bhole assured in a statement. “From what I have seen thus far, he is heading in the right direction.”
