Well, you learn something new everyday (about Jerry Lee Lewis)

Apparently he was discovered to have married his 13-year-old cousin in December 1957 – and to have been in prison twice before he turned 21! 

He was a bigamist too, and shot his bass player, lost two wives to drowning and overdosing and his son dies in a car crash.

Oh and he was also jailed again after brandishing a gun outside Graceland and demanding to see Elvis.

Goodness gracious…
