The Rock N' Roll icon has died.
Known in the music world as Little Richard, Penniman was one of the founders of Rock music in the 50's and helped shape it's entire future.
I grew up listening to his music and it has been a part of my life for over 50 years. He also appeared in the classic film "Don't Knock The Rock" in 1956 as himself. His songs for the film "The Girl Can't Help It" will forever be etched in my mind.
Penniman passed away on May 9th, 2020 at the age of 87. His death brings to a close one of the most entertaining people ever to perform rock music, but his legacy will live forever. He had such hits as "Tutti Frutti", "Keep A Knockin" and "Good Golly Miss Molly" to name a very few.
