Good Golly

A true loss.

Little Richard was rock, and therefore music, and therefore love, in one of its purest forms.

Hey don't ask anyone to moderate around here, We Can't Have That Brazen Subjectivity.

Even more disappointing is that even today, a Google search for the lyrics to Tutti Frutti brings up the first result as being by Pat "I wore black leather as a senior citizen!" Boone. The irony meter, long since blown up, nevertheless twitched a little bit today.

In this movie clip from '73, Richard talks about how he used the more popular (at the time) Boone recording to boost his own career so that people could hear "the real thing." [www.youtube.com]

One of his "then" worst reviewed albums is my favorite (reviewers just didn't get it). 1971's "The King of Rock and Roll."

The first two songs really show who he was.

King of Rock and Roll

Joy to the World

I'll never forget the time. (1991) I sat at a bus stop on the corner of Sunset and Poinsettia and Little Richard's Limo stopped in front of us. His window rolled down and he stuck his upper body up out of the window and yelled at us "I LOVE YOU!" All of us at the bus stop were thrilled and yelled "WE LOVE YOU!" back to him. He waved and rolled on out. That was a great moment.

RIP Little Richard. The Architect, The Emancipator, and the King of Rock and Roll.

I learned of this in a weird way. I started my day reading my twitter feed (from older to new) and came across an article on Little Richard that I thought was an Obit. But it wasn't it was a piece about LR as an old man living in a penthouse in Nashville. Phew... I thought... not an obit, just an article telling what he's up to these days.

it's LONG and I read parts here and there, but when I was done and scrolled back to the top, I see that it was written in 2015. A minute later, I saw the news.

This is a great piece especially for real fans. [www.oxfordamerican.org]

Elvis was The King of Rock 'n' Roll, but Little Richard far exceeded him in intensity.

A friend in high school named Jimmy had the original Little Richard album. He'd bring it over to our house and I'd play it on my father's hi-fi system with its 12" Stephens speaker. My parents were both working, so not home.

A friend in my freshman college dorm had the same album. He'd put a speaker up to the window and turn up the volume for the whole world to hear. Little Richard was meant to be played loud.

I still can't hear the name 'Lucille' without singing a line from this:

He will live as long as Rock N Roll lives.

What a magnificent soul! When I was a kid, EVERYONE knew who Little Richard was.
