Jerry Lee Lewis, the 83-year-old rock 'n' roll pioneer, suffered a minor stroke Thursday night, according to his representative.

"Right now we're just asking for prayers, and asking the media to express how important Jerry is," his publicist, Zach Farnum, said.

A statement posted on Lewis' official Facebook page and to media said: "Last night, Jerry Lee Lewis suffered a minor stroke. He is with his family, recuperating in Memphis and the doctors expect a full recovery. 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. His family requests privacy at this time. Well wishes and prayers are greatly appreciated."
