Rest in Peace Little Richard...One of the founders of rock and roll died today at the age of 87. He was one of my favorites and one of his many hits that I loved is Lucille...

You are loved and will always be in the heart of rock and roll history!


Take care, Larryz

Rest in Peace Little Richard

HUGELY influential, it is impossible to envision what rock and roll would have been without him.

Paul McCartney tried to sing like him, did pretty well at it too. You can hear his influence in many, many rock singers.

As a showman, he took elements of vaudeville, burlesque and total insanity, pumped it up a few notches with rockin' music and created a genre all his own.

David Bowie, Prince, many others followed his path. But none were like him.

This is safe as milk, sanitized for your protection but it ROCKKS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVIttmFAzek

This rocks too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCYGNtyktlg

Little Richard was the second stage rocket booster that launched rock and roll into the forefront of the 50's music scene. Bill Haley And The Comets got it off of the launching pad, Little Richard boosted it into hyper space.......RIP Little Richard you were awesome.

More than a Musician, or a performer, he was a founder, and a trailblazer. I cannot remember a time without Little Richard . . . until now.
