I am related to Mickey. He is my uncle. Mickey's father was Arthur Gilley and mother was Irene. They had 3 sons and one daughter. Aubry, Harvey, Edna, and Mickey. I only know what was told to me as I was growing up. Mickey, played and sang for the church. He and his first wife went to the same church. Mickey, ventured out and went to Houston, Tx. He played in small juke joints and was discovered by the owner of clubs. He built a large club and named it Gilley's(after Mickey of course). He played there for years. His first wife divorced him. He remarried to the one he is with now. I am not mentioning any names because I do not know if I can or not. My father is Harvey Ray Gilley. My mom is Pearl Maxine Herron Gilley. My mom's aunt married into the Lewis, family. She gave birth to Jerry Lee Lewis. Jerry's father was related to the Gilley's. My mom and dad use to joke about almost being kin. I have 3 brothers that are also in the music business(in their early years) My middle brother played and opened for Mickey, at Gilley's. My youngest brother played in his own band and now has his own recording studio.
