In the United States, it is Richard Wayne Penniman, deceased. That name says it all, you may not, but it’s going to be an artist for many years, performing as Little Richard.
Little Richard was at the beginning of the ‘ 50s, known for such hits as ‘Tutti-Frutti’, ‘Good Golly, Miss Molly’, ‘Lucille’ and ‘Long Tall Sally’. Little Richard was a true rock ‘n’ roll, and one of the “founding fathers” of the genre. At that time, it was rock ‘ n ‘ roll is far from accepted, and filled with reproach as godslaster around in a circle.
That’s Little Richard, has died, is not clear. He was 87.
