Little Richard RIP

Sad to hear that the Georgia Peach Richard Wayne Penniman better known to the world as Little Richard has died at the age of 87
In June 2001 Tutti Frutti topped a list in Mojo of the Top 100 records that changed the world.
Keith Richards recalls that on hearing this it was as though the world changed suddenly from monochrome to technicolour.

Certainly music, and the world in general, would have been a far poorer place without him

Rest easy Richard

  1. Imagine how electrifying those early concerts must have been. What a an act, the energy of those fantastic songs, what a great spectacle.
    As an aside, it with his demise, and seeing many many photos, it strikes me that Prince modelled his looks on Little Richard.
