Little Richard was one of the important figures in the development of rock ‘n’ roll. His sound and style helped moved music from rhythm & blues to rock ‘n’ roll. His series of high powered and frenetic single hits during the fifties were some of the best of the era. He was elected to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame during 1986.
He was also one of the most outrageous and flamboyant artists of not only the 50s but of all time. He was one of the first rock ‘n’ rollers to be hated by patents of teenagers.
His last top ten hit, “Good Golly Miss Molly,” was issued February 17, 1958. It would climb to number 10 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Charts. To hear him lead his band through this old tune is still a treat.
