Little Richard

December 5, 2008
Today is Little Richard’s 76th birthday. He is perhaps the person who had the greatest influence on rock and roll music; most of the top performers of my generation cited him as a significant influence in their music. Songs like "Long Tall Sally" and "Good Golly Miss Molly" have been universally used by everyone from bar room bands to wedding DJs to instantly change the mood of the audience and trigger a release of social inhibition. I admire this special ability to transform the world with such a simple message.
