guess most people know that Richard retired from performing a few years
ago. I assumed it was mostly due to health issues and advancing age;
but Richard being Richard, he is now renouncing rock and roll - AGAIN!
- as the work of the devil, says he was trying to serve two masters.
Yes, I've heard this story before. I can only imagine how hard it is to
have to give up something you love, how hard it is when you can no
longer play and sing the way you used to. So maybe this is just
Richard's way of dealing with it psychologically. The music he played
just went through you, it made you wanna move, Tutti Frutti, Long Tall
Sally, Ready Teddy, Rip it Up, Lucille, Keep a Knockin', Good Golly
Miss Molly. God blessed this world with the great talents of Richard
Wayne Penniman. Now Richard is old, and certainly deserves his rest,
and most of all peace of mind. Pray for our hero, pray that his
remaining time here on earth is filled with peace and contentment.

are the absolute KING OF ROCK AND ROLL. The first real recording I
heard was The Girl Can't Help it and Tutti Frutti on a very old
jukebox. I was probably 4. Love you. Thanks for being you. I will share
your music with my grandkids. God bless you.

Ernestine Hooker taught the bible school. If you would like a CD of
this please let me know.

disapointet when I wisited Macon, Georgia, and found no Little Richard

Mr. Penniman, I always thought you would be a fine companion if I were
stranded on an island. You are spiritual, so we could sing gospel
tunes, you are work to survive, you have humor so we could laugh at
adversity, and I could borrow your 'guy liner' for my eyes! Thank you
for the joy your music continues to bring.

Hi Richard and all his fans,
True story :
My older brother
was named Richard, he died of a brain tumor in 2000 at the age of 35
years old. Before he died i ask him what name he likes he answered me
Thomas. While he was in coma, i discovered i was pregnant. I had the
time to tell him. My little girl born in 2001 and i gave her the name
of Thomasine. I just listened the song composed by little Richard
"Thomasine" and i found it great. I wish i could know the story of
Thomasine song. I found the link very special and it will it will loop

Hi, Little Richard!
the very first time I heard your song "Tutti Frutti", I have been one
of your biggest fans. I tell you, your style in music has kept me
rockin' and rollin' and it still does. You are the architect of

Well well, "Little Richard"! WOW! I must say, I've known all about

Little Richard's Good Golly Miss Molly will blow your blues right
out of the window, down the drive along the road out to the countryside
where the Sun will shine and you'll feel great again.

Hi Richard! I am 54 years old. I am a drummer, having
played pop music in night clubs years ago. I've played gospel
since. I just started voice lessons. In all my years in
music, you are my biggest influence. You are awesome.

Thank you for bringing the joy and wonder of the journey through
rock and roll, beginning with music I loved from "The Midnighters,
Moonglows, Penguins, Clovers, that were banned from radio. Your
talent brought all those voices to us and gave me hours of dancing and
I was born when you were eight years old.
My first born, named Richard Michael was serving in the Persian Gulf in
Desert Sheild/Desert Storm when you recorded "he's not just a soldier,
he's somebodies son" in Voices that Care. I was so moved and knew
my son would be ok. He returned home unharmed.
moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, met a wonderful man and
they were outside a restaurant you had left, when you spotted them,
smiled and high signed about the baby my daughter was so obviously
pregnant with. She delivered a son, May 3, 2008. (I
think you may remember the event of seeing them)
I haven't had the
pleasure of seeing you in person, but I didn't miss your grammy
night. I was moved to tears to see you get the accolades you so
deserved for all your dedication and hard work.
Thank you so much for the Grace of your music and spirit being around me and my loved ones over the past half century plus.
God bless you always,

Ah my sweet man. I have been a fan for years so when I formed
my first Red Hat chapter of old dolls we named our group in your
honour. The Good Golly Miss Molly's are now an official chapter
here in Canada of the Red Hat Society and you are our official "hero of
Rock & Roll".
Thanks for the music.

Dear Little Richard, I wanted to tell you that ROCK &
ROLL is not dead. I introduced my granddaughter to ROCK &
ROLL and she loves your song TUTTI FRUTTI. She has that song on
her cell phone for me. So if anyone tells you that ROCK &
ROLL is going to die, not if I can help it. I grew up with ROCK
& ROLL and as long as I am alive, that will be heard in my
house. God bless you and I hope you are around for a long
time. Shirley Watkins

I just finished reading the 2004 write up of you in Rolling Stone
written by -surprise- yourself !! I have always thought if you
wish to know the truth, one must seek the source. Although not
chronologically #1, it was far better than the other reviews. You are,
by far, the most underrated personality of that era. You have not,
however, been overlooked by those that know better. God Bless, Jared.

Hello Richard, I am writing from Milan, Italy. I have 28 years,
when I was little my father listening to your songs and I was impressed
by the pace Lucille. I like even more of your songs, listen to them
again now, I do dance a lot. I read your story and discrimination that
have been exposed Congratulations and a warm embrace. Riccardo, Milan

hi! Richard. Born myself in the late 50s, rock 'n' roll music has
and still is a big part of my life. You are a true legend and who's
songs i love, and cherrish as part of my record collection that i could
never replace I wish to thankyou and other great artists of the 50's
& 60's for producing such wounderful and unforgetable songs that
have given me so much pleasure over the years.

Dear Little Richard; I have been a big fan of yours for many years.
I love your music, it makes me happy, and makes me want to dance. Your
spirit is inspiring! What a life, you are truly blessed. My
father, William A. McLaughlin was the owner of the Club Laurel, which
was on Broadway, in Chicago. My father past away, on August 4, 2008, he
was 83. He had an interesting and exciting life. My sister, Kitty and
I, are writing a book about my father's life, and gathering information
for our book. We found many jazz greats that started out playing the
Club Laurel, unfortunately many are no longer with us. We know you
played there when you first started. My dad never allowed us kids at
the club at night. We did get to go listen to you rehearse in the
afternoon. I remember the week you played the Club Laurel, in October
1968, I've been a fan ever since. I am writing to you, to ask if you
have any memorable stories, or perhaps pictures, you could share with
us. We would love to hear about your time playing at the Club
Laurel. We enjoy hearing stories about our father's life, during the
time he had the club, which was 1951 through 1971. It was a great era
in time, when Jazz was just being heard for the first time. I have
spoken with many people who frequent the Club Laurel, back in the day.
The one thing that is always repeated is the energy that the music, and
the club had. If you know of any other musician from this era, that we
can contact, we would love your input. Love to hear from you. God bless
you. Thank you for your time,

Hi Richard, we met at Vivian's Hair Salon on Crenshaw in California
some time ago. Mae (Rose) was my stylist. You gave me a
signed picture of you, but during my move to Las Vegas, it was
lost. Could you send another recent dated picture for me
(Susanne) and one for my brother (Richard Croft)? We would be
most appreciative. We love you and God Bless you. Hope to
see you performing here in Las Vegas.

I've enjoyed singing rock n' roll since the 60s,I've been in many
bands. I am now a solo singer AND I'M STILL SINGING THE SAME
SONGS,thats how good the 50s and 60s were.I'm so glad I was born in
1945,history as Little Richard says was happening every day and London
was the place to be,whew!! I can't believe I'm still alive.All the best
to L.R. and all his fans old and young.Robbie Fox.
