JERRY LEE LEWIS is recovering from a minor stroke.

The 83-year-old rock and roll musician went into hospital at the end of February suffering a minor stroke. While in hospital he was visited by one of his greatest fans, Tom Jones. Tom combined the visit when performing at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in May, where Lewis also should have appeared.

Returning home, Jerry Lee was surrounded by his family in Memphis and is expected to make a full recovery, his representative Zach Farnum said.
He also added: “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.
