The Resume

    (September 29, 1935- )
    Recorded 'Great Balls Of Fire' and 'Whole Lotta Shaking Going On'
    Had a biographical movie made about him called 'Great Balls of Fire'

Why he might be annoying:

    He was highly competitive; legend has it he set fire to his piano so Chuck Berry couldn't follow his act.
    Two words: Myra Lewis.
    When he married 13-year-old cousin Myra, he was already married to another woman.
    His records were banned virtually worldwide when word got out about the scandal.
    He divorced Myra eventually.
    He was an alcoholic for some time.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He got frustrated because he couldn't dance around on stage like Carl Perkins, so during a performance he kicked over his piano stool and played standing up; this became his trademark.
    He did a now-famous jam session with Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley.
    After the scandal, he nonetheless kept performing and made a successful comeback in the 60s, playing country music this time out.
    He had a bio-pic about him, starring Dennis Quaid.
    They call him 'The Killer.'
    He's a rock & roll legend.
