Little Richard - Flamboyant Wild Man Of Rock-N-Roll Dies 87

American singer Little Richard Death

American singer Little Richard Is Death:


Deeply singing and screaming at the gospel music and the blues, it seems as if for his own life, he has created something new, exciting and dangerous.

Richard Penniman, better known as Little Richard, who created some of the world's first and most influential rock 'n' roll records combined with obscene words from the Black Church's holy pastor and the Blues, died Saturday morning in Tulomoa, Tenn. He was 6 years old.

His lawyer, Bill Sobel, said it was because he had bone cancer:


Little Richard Rock did not invent the ‘n’ roll. In September 1955, at the New Orleans Recording Studio, other musicians were already digging similar veins while recording his first hit, "Tutti Frutti" - an annoying song about sex.

Chuck Berry and Fats Domino Pop reached the top ten, Bo Didley was at the top of the Rhythm-O-Blues chart and Elvis Presley had been setting records for over a year.

But Little Richard took a keen interest in evangelistic music and the deep currents of the blues, shouting at the piano and shouting that for his life, the energy level had raised several levels and created a song that was unmatched by any other music ever heard. - Something new, exciting and even more dangerous.

As rock historian Richie Unterberger puts it, "The voltage from high-powered R&B is the same, yet different, so it's important to disguise the rock 'n' roll."

Art Roop of Specialty Records, the label for which he recorded his biggest hits, calls Little Richard "dynamic, completely forbidden, unpredictable, wild."

"Tutti Frutti" rocketed the charts and then quickly followed "Long Tall Sally" and other records that are recognized as classics. His live performance was Electrification.

"He just burst onto the stage from anywhere, and you won't be able to hear anything but the roar of the audience," said record producer and arranger H.B. Barnum, who played the saxophone with Little Richard early in his career, recalled in Charles White's authoritative biography, "The Life and Times of Little Richard" (1974). , Whip the audience. "

Early rock 'n' roll was incredible macho music, but as a teenager, Little Richard Staest presented a very different image: after a playful outfit, his hair was filled six inches high, his face gleaming with cinematic makeup.

She was interested in saying in later years that if Elvis was the king of the rock ‘n’ roll, she would be the queen. Offstage, he identified himself in various ways as gay, bisexual, and "omnipotent."

His influence as an actor was immense. It can be seen and heard in the extraordinary adornment of James Brown, who sculpted him (and used some of his musicians when Little Richard took a long break from acting in 1957), and Prince, whose bilateral image owed him a great debt.

Presley recorded his songs. The Beatles have adopted its trademark sound, an eighth-leaping wave: "Wow!" (Paul McCartney said that the first song he publicly sang was "Long Long Sally", which he later recorded with the Beatles.)

Bob Dylan wrote in his high school yearbook that his ambition was to "join Little Richard."

American singer Little Richard's influence was also social:


Mr White quoted him as saying, "I've always thought that rock 'n' roll has brought the race together." Especially coming from the South, where you see obstacles, all the people who thought we hated us for showing all this love. "

Mr Barnum told Mr White that in those days the concert in the South "still kept the audience separate," but when Little Richard performed, "most of the time, before the end of the night, they all blended."

If bringing black and white audiences together was a matter of pride for Little Richard, it was a cause for concern for others, especially in the South.

The White Citizens Council of North Alabama has largely condemned the rock ‘n’ roll because it “brought people of both races together”.

And with many radio stations under pressure to keep black music out of the air, Pat Boone's clean-up, the toned-down version of "Tutti Freight," was a bigger hit than Little Richard's original.

He also hit with "Long Long Sally" Still, it seemed that Little Richard's driving could not stop at the top - unless he stopped himself.

He rose to prominence when he left the United States in September 1957 to begin a tour of Australia.

He was tired of telling the story, under the intense pressure of internal revenue services and angry at the low royalty rate he received from the speciality.

Without anyone advising him, he signed a deal that gave him half a per cent of each record sold. "Tutti Frutti" sold half a million copies but only forged 25 25,000.

He had an epiphany in front of 40,000 fans in an outdoor courtyard in Sydney one night in early October.

He had one of the last 10 best hits: "Good Alley Miss Molly", recorded in 1956, but was not released until early 1958, when he left the rock 'n' roll behind.

He became a travelling traveller. He entered Oakwood College (now Oakwood University) in Huntsville, Ala's Seventh-day Adventist School, to study for the ministry.

She cut her hair, got married and started recording gospel music. Throughout his life, he was torn between the gravity of the pulpit and the tension of the stage.

He returned to the stage in 19262 and for the next two years, he played wildly in England, Germany and France.

Among his opening performances were the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, then early in their careers. He travelled relentlessly to the United States, a band that once included Jimmy Hendrix on guitar.

In the late 1960s, sales performances in Las Vegas and a winning presence at the Atlantic City and Toronto Rock Festival sent a clear message: Little Richard was back.

On his account, alcohol and cocaine began to sap his soul ("I lost my reasoning later," he would say later), and in 1977, he returned to God from the rock 'n' roll again.

He became a Bible seller, started recording religious songs again, and for the second time, disappeared from the spotlight.

He did not stay away forever. His autobiography was published in 1984, signalling his return to the public eye, and he resumed acting.

Until then, he had the same personality as a musician. In 1986, he starred as the record producer of Paul Mazursky's hit movie "Down and Out in Beverly Hills".

On television, he appeared on talk, variety, comedy and award shows. She performed at celebrity weddings and preached at celebrity funerals.

He could still raise the roof at the concert. In December 1992, he stole a rock ‘n’ roll revival ceremony at Wembley Arena in London. "I'm 60 years old today, and I still look great," he told the audience.

With the occasional wig and thick pancake makeup she travelled in the 21st century - she continued to look great. But age finally began to hurt.

In 2007, he was walking on stage with two canes. In 2012, he abruptly finished a performance at the Howard Theater in Washington and told the crowd, "I can't breathe too much." A year later, he told Rolling Stone magazine that he was retiring.

Survivors include a son named Danny Jones Pennyman. Complete information about survival was not immediately available

Richard Wayne was born in the town of Macon in Pennyman Village. On December 5, 1932, Charles and Leva's mother (Stuart) Pennyman had their third child, the third.

His father was a brick mason who sold moonshine next door. One uncle, cousin, and grandfather was a preacher, and as a boy, he joined the Seventh-day Adventist, Baptist, and Holy Church, and aspired to be a song preacher.

The early influence was on the gospel singer and guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe, one of the first performers to connect a religious message with the R&B instant. As a teenager, Richard's ambitions took a turn.

He left home and began travelling with medicine and minstrel shows, part of the 19th-century tradition that was dying in 1948, billed as Little Richard - the name was a reference to his youth and not his physical length - he was a minstrel from Alabama called Sugarfoot Sam. Troop was a cross-dressing performer who had been travelling for decades.
