Guestbook March - July 2000

hi! I love your music. And my sisters do to. WE are going to start a singing group. And we wanted to know if you could help us out. And be our producer.
Diamond Ballard 2000-07-29

My own first exposure to your music (while still a kid) was "Freedom Blues" in the early '70's -- I was instantly transfixed.  Took another five years before I discovered your great 50's material (what can I say -- did not grow up in N.America, Europe, N.Z., or Australia) -- and the same thing happened.  If Louis Jordan invented R&B, it was surely you who perfected it -- and (along with Chuck Berry) invented rock n roll in the process.  My vantage point may be a little different than others, but the end sentiment could not possibly be any different -- YOU ARE THE GREATEST!!

Dear, Little Richard you are the King of Rock-n-Roll.  I love your energy you are fabulous, I have always admired you since I was a teen in the 1980's and when I saw Your Bio on TV, (I see wear jimi, prince, and michael got their funk/Rock from...YOU ARE THE ORGINATOR I BELIVE), from watching your life on TV, I grew to understand appreciate you and your talent more and what you did first for Rock-n-Roll, and most of all Black music.  I myself am a singer and composer.    I wish you many years of creative happiness. Father/Brother of the orginal Rock, THANK YOU! THANK! YOU THANK! THANK YOU!  GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS, PEACE AND LOVE....Jayne67

Hello Richard, My name is Taylor Moulton. WhenI hear your music it makes me want to get up and dance. I know that there are alot of fans out there that like you but I think I am your most number one fan. 
Taylor Moulton 2000-07-22

I'm re-building my home, and had no spare time to travel all over Europe to see Richard. But for Little Richard News Magazine I need information's about this tour: Which songs were performed? How many people were et the concerts etc. Maybe you can help me? Send any information's to: You also can ask about information's about LITTLE RICHARD NEWS MAGAZINE.

Have any of you cats noticed the postings of little 8yr old Tyriq Bradley & Nancie Thomas. I sure don't want to age anybody but that sure sounds like a lot of us.  We were about Tyriq's age when we first heard Richard and here we are Nancie's age, still digging Little Richard.  Isn't it amazing, white boy Pat is only memories and Elvis is gone, yet the big three are still there.  Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, all black as midnight and yet their music is like a living rainbow. It wasn't so much the color as it was the aura.
Tyree Everyman 2000-07-20

I saw my 1st Little Richard album when I was about 10/1959. "Here's Little Richard". First chance I had I bought it and then I bought "Biggest Hits". By then I was in my teens and spending money on records & girls. (I'm a lot older now but somehow things don't seemed to have changed much) Bob who owned the music store suggested that I order 2104 "Fabulous Little Richard" and I did so.  "Wow"! I shall never forget the first time I ever heard Little Richard sing "Shake A Hand".  Wow, what an album. That was nearly 40yrs ago and I have never forgotten that moment.

Greetings Little Richard, (if you DO read this).I've been a fan for years, since i was 18 in 1972 and first saw you on one of those "In Concert" things on TV on Friday nights in the good old pre MTV days. I have been on a similar spititual journey, as i am a 46 year old Baptist Missionary's son, raised in the Caribbean (St. Vincent) until i was 18. For me you are the "KIng of Rock-n-Roll" and Jerry Lee Lewis is the Crown Prince, and Chuck Berry is the "High Priest" You 3 men made Rock-n-Roll what it is today. Thank you. I will never forget seeing you perform in that silver jump suit with the cape, sweat rollin' off you like a rainstorm. I thought "Who is this madman" Then i got totally sold. As i researched into your stage personna i came to realise you started "Glam Rock" and had one of the best "Big bands" of any era of rock. I was always a fan of the "Big bands" like Rare Earth, Chicago, Mom's Aple Pie and Blood Sweat and Tears. You were/are  the best of them all. My grandkids love your Disney CD and when we travel it's one CD we can all agree on on the Car...what a laugh...Grandpa & kids screeming "Itsy Bitsy Spider"....I love you Mr. Penimen & God bless you and keep you "strokin" for many years to come.Larry Henry

Saw Richards E! True Hollywood Segment. Pretty good.I think you are the greatest.
Christina Harcharik 2000-07-17

My mother first heard your songs when my grandfather introduced her to your great style of music. She was singing country music at that time with her oldest sister, loved music but not the style she was singing. My grandfather bought her a few of your recordings and she said, I want tobe like him. When she was five she had the honorto be asked by Mr. Duke Ellington to sing with him and Ertha Kitt even gave her a piano. My mother has been quite Ill in health since I wasborn, doctors said she would be dead by the age of 22, she is still alive, has had some musicaldreams come true, and is more active than I haveseen her in years. She has a goal to see LittleRichard at the top of the charts again and I believe with your talent and her determination itcan be done. I will be 23 years of age this August, born and raised on your great music, andmy one wish in life is to have you talk with her.God Bless you and your loved ones, and sing a song somenight for my mother, even if she is not there I know she will hear you. A devoted fan ofyours and a dauther that knows what it is to have a mother I want to give something back to before I do lose her, the odds are not in her favor.Thank you for listening,Rashell R. Richmond

We went to see Little Richard (+ Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry) at the Legends of Rock'n'Roll Festival in Zurich. Little Richard played as second band but was definitely the star of the evening. He brought more energy onto the stage than all the others put together. Very impressive were his two drummers. Great show lads ! A couple of hundred people left the stadium after Little Richard's show. In fact my daughter and I stayed for 15 minutes of Chuck Berry then left because it was boring after Little Richard's show. Anyway it was a fantastic show of L.R. and the crowd went crazy ! Dane and Karin in Switzerland

Little Richard, Thanks for the great concert in K.C.Mo.I first saw you in the early 60's in K.C. Kansas. I wasn't quite 12 and you signed the back of a Hershey bar wrapper for me. It has since turned to dust but my admiration and love of your music will never end . My best to you always , you are the King . Nancie

Kelly Ball 2000-06-07

Ya wanna hear someone sing from the bottom of his soul? Little Richard's early work, like Shake a Hand is a masterpiece. Wish he did a little more bluesey stuff. Heard once, he did a show, and in an apparent rock n roll frenzy, climbed the stage curtains, fell from the top, and had to be carried off on a stretcher. When he was wheeled almost out of the auditorium, jumped up and finished the song! Pat Boone never had a chanceA
Randy Williams 2000-06-07

Hey Mr. Penniman, you are truly the greatest.  Without you, Rock 'n Roll would never have been born.  You deserve more credit than you will probably ever get.  I love you dearly, and admire you so, so much.I've been listening to your R&R since I was about 6yrs old.  Keep it up, brother...  ROCK AND ROLL! BOP AND STROLL !  i love you... is really all I can say.  Karen Fair 2000-05-10

I have a highschool class of students with disabilities in Kansas City, Kansas. Every year, we have a Talent show as a fundraiser since our students have needs beyond the district's budget.  This year we have the perfect  little, little, richard in our millennium talent show representing richard as the King of the 50's.  He is so good and so proud and so am I.  You are the "King of Rock and Roll. Wish you could be here to see him.  Clerand

My friends and I have always been crazy about Little Richard.He has always been so 'On Time'.  It's fun to listen, it's funto dance to, even now.  The new so call creative performers have a long way to go to measure up to Little Richard.  Except, maybeLaFace, my homes.

Mr Richard, I am only 4 and I love your music.My moma and I liked your movie on T.V. God bless you.
Mark Anthony Robinson 2000-03-25

As far as I'm concerned Elvis and Richard should co-own the title of "The King."  After all, Mr. Penniman taught Paul McCartney everything he knows.  And Sir Paul knows A LOT.
John Lorince 2000-03-24

I have loved the music of Lil Richard for more than thirty five years, I am 41 now.  If anyone should be called the godfather of Rock and Roll it's Little Richard.  By the way, I'm from Cairo Gorgia.

Little Richard, your the best and you still rock!  The 'Bronze Liberace' is the man!  Your movie was great.  I'm now going to listen to my favorite Little Richard album, 'Little Richard, cast a long shadow'.  Thanks for being you,Scott Wickham
Scott Wickham 2000-03-14

Little Richard? It's all great, but why don't these people ever come to places where people had no chance to see them during "the era"? Do come to Prague/Czech Rep. and take Chuck Berry with you! :-)
Jiri Bohac 2000-03-13

Long live the memory of Lee Allen and those great New Orleans studio musicians who made it happen on Little Richards' hits. We danced the night away and the good memories live on! Thanks for the energetic and wild music Little Richard!

Rinoa Hertlock 2000-03-11

Little Richard is my inspiration.  He is the artist that takes me to places where no one else can.  He is the soul originator of rock 'n roll.  Little Richard you are my hero.  My coworkers and I are mad about you.  We all got together and watched your long overdue movie.  Little Richard,  we can't express how much we appreciate your contributions to the music world.
