Rock 'n' roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis is on the mend after he suffered a minor stroke earlier this week.
The 83-year-old musician had a stroke Thursday evening, but is expected to make a "full recovery," according to his publicist Zach Farnum.
“He is with his family, recuperating in Memphis and the doctors expect a full recovery,” Farnum told People magazine on Friday. “The Killer looks forward to getting back into the studio soon to record a Gospel record and on the road performing live for his fans."
