Could Jimmy Swaggart have rivaled Jerry Lee?

Sun Nov 03, 2013 1:06 am

If Jimmy Swaggart had chosen "the devils path" like his cousin Jerry Lee Lewis, could he have been as big or even bigger than Jerry Lee. Aside from his whole scandal and whether he's a crook and a fraud, he's has a lot of soul "musically" and and of course he is flamboyant so I think he could have been a big country or rock and roll star had he chosen the same path as his cousin.

No one cuts the Killer. ;-)

Swaggart is pretty good at crying, though.

That's nice, but not as good as his crying. ;-)

Well..., nothing is as good as his crying. He should have gotten an academy award for that. Those weren't crocodile tears, they were dinosaur tears! He's a wretched human being but you can't deny his talent.

His other cousin, Mickey Gilley had more hits.

Really, I didn't know that. Pop hits from Urban Cowboy and country hits after?
