Little Richard passed away. Great rock íní roll legend who influenced many future recording stars and, among other things, befuddled the censors with his lyrics.

Yep, a legend for sure.

Also, we lost magician Roy Horn (Siegfried & Roy) to coronavirus.

RIP Little Richard Penniman. Like Arthur says, a "legend", at the very beginning of rock and roll. His many interviews are fun to read. I recently saw him do a cameo in an old Columbo show...just delightful. Lynn

One of the last of the original rock-n-rollers. He did so much for bringing together blacks and whites through his music at atime where that just didn't exist. He was quite a guy that doesn't always seem to get the credit he deserves with his place in rock-n-roll history. RIP.

I loved him when I was a kid but I did not know he was still alive.
