American rock and roll, country music singer-songwriter and pianist, Jerry Lee Lewis, has an estimated net worth of $15 million. His exploits as a piano-thumping, egocentric wild man with an unquenchable thirst for living have become the fodder for numerous biographies, film documentaries, and a full-length Hollywood movie. He broke on the national scene in 1957 with his classic "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On". Lewis's career faltered after he married his young cousin, and he afterwards made a career extension to country music.
Lewis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986 and his pioneering contribution to the genre has been recognized by the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. In 2008 He was inducted into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him number 24 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
