Little Richard (born Richard Wayne Penniman on December 5, 1932) was a Rock and Roll pioneer.
Little Richard began singing gospel tunes before his talent was discovered. He forcefully claims to be the largely overlooked originator of Rock and Roll.
In the early 1960’s he tried to rekindle his former glory. One of his guitarists during this period was Jimi Hendrix. His hits include Long Tall Sally and Good Golly Miss Molly.
