↑Christgau, Robert (1981). "Jerry Lee Lewis". Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the '70s. Da Capo Press. p. 225. ISBN0306804093. His drive, his timing, his offhand vocal power, his unmistakable boogie-plus piano, and his absolute confidence in the face of the void make Jerry Lee the quintessential rock and roller. He's a country artist out of geography and simple pique at rock's scared-shitless powers-that-be—it was the inadequacy of country's moralism, after all, that drove him to rockabilly.
