Goodness, gracious - Jerry Lee Lewis has a book deal.

The currently untitled memoir is due to be released in 2012, according to publisher It Books.

In a statement from the publisher, Jerry Lee says he is ready to say "a whole lot" about his life. He added: "People can read it, burn it, or never give it another thought. Either way the truth is about to be told, and I'm the only man still standing who can touch it."

The rock 'n' roll great is known for such piano-driven smashes as Great Balls of Fire and Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On.

He is equally well-known for a private life as wild as his stage act, from getting thrown out of Bible school to his marriage to a 13-year-old cousin that nearly destroyed his career.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Expressing your creative side is strongly advised. Take this opportunity to write, paint or play music. Relatives may not appreciate your work, but that doesn't matter. The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
