Little Richard - The Inventor Of Rock and Roll
Little Richard – The Inventor Of Rock and Roll
Little Richard was the originator of the sound known as Rock and Roll, and along with his pounding, hard driving piano playing, and raspy whoop and holler singing and original songwriting style, Richard Wayne Penniman became the first super star of rock and roll’s first generation. Dressed in flamboyant clothes, androgynous makeup and a pompadour hair style, Little Richard was a high voltage sensation in concerts and on records, with #1 hit songs like “Long Tall Sally”, “Tutti Fruiti”, and more. His music during the 1950s and 1960s integrated teenagers throughout America.
Join us as we celebrate the life and career of the sensational Little Richard with a vast collection of rare live concert footage and television performances from all around the world. Songs include “Long Tall Sally”, “Good Golly Miss Molly”, “Lucille”, “Rip It Up”, “Jenny Jenny”, “Tutti Fruiti” and many more.
