Most of you know of my aff-FECK-shun for Little Richard. Fresh off of a half-time performance on Thanksgiving night at the USC-ASU game, The Originator is 75 years young today. So…..I wanted to make sure that the day was appropriately observed.
Here’s to an icon. The Architect of Rock & Roll. An indelible influence on 20th and 21st Century music. A lovely soul.
Happy Birthday, Richard Wayne Penniman!
Makes my toe shoot up in ma boot!
