After TMZ erroneously reported the death of legendary singer Jerry Lee Lewis on Wednesday and then retracted the story, Lews did actually die on Friday at age 87, according to his publicist.
Lewis was known for iconic 1950s hits "Great Balls of Fire" and "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," as well as many other hits over his long career.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, its inaugural year, and won many other awards.
Despite Lewis's hell-raising ways, including alcohol, drugs, and womanizing, he outlived many of the other top musicians of his day, including Elvis Presley.
His music career, which started when he was 16, spanned seven decades and he was able to keep fans happy through the years.
