So sad. At least he had a good long run, and it wasn't the plaque that got him.
A titan. Much respect.
RIP, Mr. Penniman
Damn. He had to be the most bursting-with-personality performer and person ever. Great voice and vocal style, from which McCartney borrowed plenty.
So this must leave Jerry Lee as the last man standing from the original crop of RnRers? who amazingly just released a new album.
RIP Mr. Penniman.
I was born in '54, Little Richard was some of the first music I ever heard.
Thank you Richard.
Such a fantastic performer. Sad.
Richard Wayne Penniman will undoubtedly Rest In Peace
I saw him perform at an outdoor festival in the early 90's in Huntsville, AL. He just killed it. Had the whole place jumping. As I recall he told the audience he was 60 years old. He looked half that and had the energy and the moves to match. A fantastic show by a great showman. Aloha, Richard.
The story with Buddy Holly is perhaps the greatest moment in any musician's bio ever published.
In his own words, "The Innovator. The Originator. The Architect of Rock and Roll."
Rest in Peace, Mr. Penniman.
I was thirteen when I first heard Little Richard. When I'd go to one of those little parties where they had girls and all, there were always some LR records on one of those little turntables doing all it could, not loud, but good.
RIP you legend, you trailblazer
One of my favorites.
I bought a car this year with a working cd player, and put an old compilation cd in it. My daughter kept putting the LR tracks on, for the full drive to school, and so much so she wanted to see his old concerts on YouTube
She got a shock. Proper art, proper talent
Another part of my youth gone, but his music will live on. RIP Little Richard!
Seeing Little Richard on TV in the sixties is how I learned what "flamboyant" meant. A true original, RIP.
to me, Little Richard is the man who brought a quality of transcendence to rock. his energy and his blow-it-out vocals took early rock to a level of excitement few others have ever understood. he made it into something you don't take home to mother.
in every era of rock music, there are few records that rock as hard as his.
