Musical palate cleanser, one of the greats is gone edition

Well, shit.

Boy, has Macon, Georgia punched above its weight.

So many iconic tunes to choose from… so I’ll choose this one.

RIP, my man.

    Definitely showing my age here, but as a (really) young kid in the ’50s I’d grab my teen-aged sister’s records when she wasn’t around and spin Little Richard and early Elvis 45s (not to mention some by Gary U.S. Bonds) like a fiend. I hate this.

  2. My wife and I were headed out of Atlanta for a weekend when she saw Little Richard on one of Delta’s carts headed to his gate. My wife said, “Hi, Little Richard!” He smiled and waved. RIP, sir. That made me think of this:

    RIP, sir.
    I had the privilege of seeing him perform in 1994.
    I’ve never seen that photo with Richard and The Beatles before. Ringo looks like a dummy sitting in Richards lap.

      Even a dummy can look at that picture and see Ringo is not sitting in Little Richard’s lap.

    Richard was the very last of my late 60s and early 70s heroes that I used to slip past past my bad ass ole man and off down to Macon with my bad cousin Anthony and get thoroughly corrupted by the greatest music scene that has ever been known in Georgia (sorry Athens, but you ain’t even close). Over the years, one by one, Otis, then Duane, Greg a couple of years ago, and now Richard are all gone from this tired old earth. Damn, I miss ’em.

    And he got to the point he could take a joke on himself. Remember Down And Out In Beverly Hills?

    I wonder what songs the Beatles sang at that 1962 concert in Hamburg?

      The Beatles debuted ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ and a bunch of covers by Chuck Berry, King Curtis etc. That was when I was working undercover with Air Force Intelligence and before my gig as a Space Shuttle Door Gunner. Did that Ranger stuff in between to fill my idle time.

    Did Little Richard have an extremely large head. In that picture, his head looks at least 50% larger than any of the Beatles. It kinda looks like one of those fake pictures where the bass is as big as the pick up bed.
