Falleció Little Richard

87 años tenía el estadounidense, uno de los llamados pioneros del estilo, al momento de partir de este mundo, según información oficializada por su hijo, Danny Jones Penniman.

Sentado junto al piano, peinados provocativos, letras cargadas a lo sexual y una voz despampanante y exhuberante, Little Richard se transformó en una influencia absoluta por su aporte en la primera época del rock & roll, con las generaciones siguientes venerando constantemente su figura. "Escuché a Little Richard y Jerry Lee Lewis, y eso fue todo. Nunca quise ser otra cosa", dijo Elton John una vez, refiriéndose a uno de sus ídolos. Pero no solo él, The Beatles, Scorpions, Creedence Clearwater Revival y muchos más lo han reconocido.

Una verdadera pena, se va uno de los iniciadores de esta música que disfrutamos tanto. Solo queda agradecer todo lo hecho por Little Richard. Desde el momento en que se conoció la noticia, varios artistas han expresado su pesar-desde Bob Dylan a Mick Jagger-, citándolo como una verdadera influencia.
I just heard the news about Little Richard and I’m so grieved. He was my shining star and guiding light back when I was only a little boy. His was the original spirit that moved me to do everything I would do.

RIP Little Richard, a very sad loss. My thoughts are with his loved ones.⁣

It’s Little Richard’s songs that pioneered rock’n’roll. I got to hear him and his band at the Newport Lounge in Miami and boy were they good. ⁣

From 'Tutti Frutti' to 'Long Tall Sally' to 'Good Golly, Miss Molly' to 'Lucille', Little Richard came screaming into my life when I was a teenager. I owe a lot of what I do to Little Richard and his style; and he knew it. He would say, 'I taught Paul everything he knows'.

Without a doubt - musically, vocally and visually - he was my biggest influence. Seeing him live in my teens was the most exciting event in my life at that point. Goosebumps, electricity and joy came from every pore.

Sadly, Little Richard passed away today. A founding Father of Rock And Roll, his contributions simply can’t be overstated. I had the honor of meeting Richard in his later years and was awed by his presence. He told me, “I am the architect of Rock And Roll.” Amen! ..Rest In Peace. https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1259124478270820358

Little Richard was one of the original rock 'n' rollers-- He was THE ORIGINAL GLAM ROCKER, and he took a lot of abuse for being in the first wave. He forged a path for all of us who followed.
