    We lost an American icon.

    Tutti Frutti.

    I think this leaves Jerry Lee Lewis as about the only one of that era still living.

    I saw Jerry lee (opening) and little Richard in the Bronx about 20 years ago.

    Jerry lee played country for 40 minutes and then labored through great balls and shaking for us. He seemed to be about 100 years old.

    Then little Richard came out there like a tornado and blew the roof off the place. It was amazing!

    Dead for over 10 years

    I was thinking that. A song he made up as a dish washer. Part of his early performing career and with friends in the industry. Then cleaned up when it was recorded.

    That is it. Near the end of a musical era.

    Oh, OK. I actually like all those old guys. I couldn't name any but I did like their music when I heard it. It sucks but we all have a hole in the ground with our name on it.
