All Hail The King
That is, until I read it. It's just sad. I feel really bad for the guy. He broke so many barriers and was the first to do so many things. He literally influenced everybody. His songs still friggin' rock. Every rock biography I've ever read mentions him somewhere in the first 30-40 pages. Even my parents, who generally hate rock 'n' roll, went to see Little Richard in concert and loved it.
And yes, I do actually own a Little Richard CD. I doubt he made any money off of it though. He's on my Pollstar auto-notify list. I'd jump at the chance if he comes anywhere close to DC.
All hail the true king of rock 'n' roll.
