Jerry Lee Lewis:
One of the original rock’n’roll stars who many thought would be bigger than Elvis, the 23-year-old Lewis’s world fell apart when he arrived in Britain to tour. The press uncovered the fact that the young bride who was accompanying him was not only his cousin but also just 13 years old. Oh, and don’t forget that he was still married to his second wife. There was an instant public uproar and the tour was scrapped after just three shows. The scandal followed Lewis home to America, and essentially destroyed his music career.
