Little Richard checked out for good. I was never a big fan, but how can anybody else right something like and make it a hit??

Little Richard had homosexual proclivities, but understood in the end that we can control our urges and are responsible for our behaviors.

"Anybody that comes in show business, they gon' say you gay or straight," he said. "God made men, men and women, women... You've got to live the way God wants you to live... He can save you." -
Little Richard, 2017.

The word pioneer is used too often but certainly applies to him.

The real king of rock and roll. RIP
this is true. he wrote many songs back in the day for other entertainers, i do believe Elvis being just one of them. there were so many very talented black singers back in the day, but given the climate of the era, they were not allowed on many radio stations.

Man that sucks. Another rock legend gone. Bill Haley, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, and now Little Richard. True pioneers all gone :(
