Jerry Lee Lewis is going to tell his incredible story in an autobiography for HarperCollins Publishers.
"I have spent my life listening to those who know so little say so much about me and my life," said Lewis in a statement. "I am ready to say a whole lot about why I lived my life the way I did. People can read it, burn it, or never give it another thought. Either way the truth is about to be told, and I'm the only man still standing who can touch it."
Jerry Lee Lewis is a living legend and literally the last man standing from the crop that gave is Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Roy Orbison.
"Mr. Lewis personifies the American story, in all its richness and contradiction," said Cal Morgan for IT Books. "He's a man of astonishing natural talent, profound belief, and indomitable spirit. What a thrill to have the chance to work with him on this unforgettable book."
Morgan won the rights to the book after an auction.
Jerry Lee Lewis signed to iconic Sun Records in the 50s and delivered early rock and roll hits like 'Great Balls of Fire' and 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On' more than half a decade before The Beatles formed.
The Lewis book will be released in 2012.
