In Memory of Little Richard (December 5th, 1932 – May 9th, 2020) – (Musical Hippie History)

I am sorry to announce that rock and roll legend Little Richard has passed away from possible bone cancer, age 87. Born Richard Wayne Penniman, Little Richard’s music and charisma helped lay the early foundations of rock and roll, from his wails to the way he shakes his body behind his piano, his influence earned him the nicknames “The Innovator, The Originator, and The Architect of Rock and Roll.” Without Richard’s music we wouldn’t have The Beatles, without his backup band, The Upsetters we wouldn’t ever know the great Jimi Hendrix who fun fact was fired from the band for trying to always out show Little Richard, Jimi of course found his spotlight with a amazing catalog of music. A truly tragic lose of a iconic showman, we send our condolences to the family of Little Richard as he joins the show up in the great beyond, may he rest in peace
