Little Richard, flamboyant rock ‘n’ roll pioneer, dead at 87
3 hours ago · NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Little Richard, one of the chief architects of rock ‘n’ roll whose piercing wail, pounding piano and towering pompadour irrevocably altered popular music while introducing black R&B to white America, died Saturday after battling bone cancer. He was 87.
Oh wow I just found out about his passing today from this post. How sad may his soul rest in heavenly peace.
