I thought I heard once that before Jimi Hendrix was well known, he was in Little Richard's band and eventually got kicked out because he kept stealing the show. Cool story if it's true. Either way, happy birthday Little Richard.
I loooooooooove Little Richard- he 's my #1 favorite 50s rocker, more than Elvis or Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee or Chuck. I just cannot fathom what people in 1956 conservative America must have thought the first time ya hey saw/ heard him. It really must have been like encountering a Martian.
I once saw LR preach about the evils of oral sex in a church. He got so graphic that some of the congregation left. He didn't get what he thought was a fair offering, so he passed the plate again...and again. That was a great night. LR cannot be equaled!
