Sorry to say, Dreaded this day and thought a lot about him lately seeing him in wheelchair…Little Richard, Founding Father of Rock Who Broke Musical Barriers, has passed at 87. Amazingly, he outlived younger proteges’ Michael and Prince #littlerichard Full recommended review

There was so much to Little Richard. He was probably the first to personify rock and roll on both musicality and flamboyance. Perhaps his interviews and clips in ‘Let the Good Tmes Roll’ gave the best glimpse into the REAL Little Richard, in his own words…

‘I cant look no better than that.’ – Little Richard backstage…before there was Prince or Michael, from ‘Let the Good Times Roll’. Richard tells it like it is or was
And even is generously kind to Pat Boone who ‘stole’ his songs.
