    I don't really know much of his music other than the popular ones, but I did see him live and he was an awesome entertainer, one of the most fun gigs I've been to. RIP.

    Hell of a run. Although he made some questionable career decisions later on (Full House, looking at you), no doubt that he was a huge influence on just about everyone in rock n roll. RIP.

    R.I.P. LITTLE RICHARD (Richard W. Penniman). A true original. One of the founders not just of Rock 'N Roll, but, of all modern pop entertainment. I got to meet and work with him in the mid-90s, and it was a joy. I remember watching that episode of Baywatch (where this photo was taken) with some of my younger cousins and one of them shouted, "Prince!!". Indeed, they all followed in his footsteps.Name:  LittleR.jpg

    That is awesome!


    I have to tell you, I'm a little worried for Jerry Lee, and yes, even Keith Richards.

    Here is a clip of the god himself singing Good Golly Miss Molly on that episode I worked with him on. I'm just out of camera range bowing!
