Little Richard - what a guy!

I felt sad when I heard that Little Richard has gone.  Not just because of that but also because I had not thought of him or his songs for a long time.  So I'm making up a little bit for that now.

He had a long and colourful life – a tribute to him that he made it to 87 given how hard he parties.  Maybe there's hope for the rest of us yet!

So his famous songs included – Tutti Frutti, Long Tall Sally, Good Golly Miss Molly and Lucille – each one a happy classic.

He was a preacher for many years and officiated at the funerals of Wilson Pickett and Ike Turner.
