Beale Street club to bear Jerry Lee Lewis' name

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A new club being opened on Memphis' famous Beale Street will bear rocker Jerry Lee Lewis' name.

According to The Commercial Appeal, Jerry Lee Lewis' Cafe and Honky Tonk is scheduled to open May 1.

Lewis' manager J.W. Whitten said the legendary singer will appear "time to time," but said the man known as "the killer" won't be down there every Saturday night.

Club manager Bud Chittom said there will be live rock `n' roll and a menu that features Southern foods.
