    To me he is the father of rock and roll..As he would say Elvis is the king of Rock but I was the architect...

    So sad to see this. I teach American Popular Music (among many other courses) at a university and he is always one of my favorites to introduce to the students.

    He was incredible and a huge inspiration to The Beatles and others. I wish I would have seen him live do Long Tall Sally.

    Let me ask you guys: why is the media not covering his death very much? His legacy is absolutely astronomical. Without "Tutti Frutti," we may not have had rock n roll like we did. He united blacks and whites, and inspired so many musicians. Why was Rush's drummer (which is genuinely sad and big news) covered so extensively, but not Lil Richard? Curious.

    RIP to one of the pioneers of rock and roll.

    1991 Hollywood blvd a friend and I were hanging out. Teenagers smoking drinking. Someone calls to us from a limo, we walk over to the open window. Little Richard gave us each a bible and gave us a god bless. God bless you, my friend.
