The Killer- Jerry Lee Lewis had only 18 Hot 100 hits- and 6 Top 40 hits in his career but his impact can’t be measured in hits. I wasn’t around then but I would imagine back in the late 50’s when Jerry Lee and Little Richard arrived on the scene it was like an alien invasion. Those guys were wacked out crazy. Jerry Lee is still alive- probably too mean to die. The Last Man Standing.
