You are the bomb! I wish I was around to have seen you in person. Thank you
for sharing your spirit and your talent with us. Thank you GOD for sharing
Little Richard with us.

I love your singing.I also think that you have a wonderful gift.

I have seen The Beatles "live" four times.... The Stones five times....and
every other act you could care to name.Believe me, nobody, nobody, NOBODY comes
close to the amazing Little Richard.His show (in the aptly-named Boom-Boom Rooms,
which later went boom! boom! in the worst possible way) in Belfast in the early
sixties, was the greatest experience of my life. He was at the peak of his
prodigious powers.The Upsetters (with the legendary Grady Gaines on tenor
saxophone) were on fire.....but Richard......Richard was a bolt of lightning!I
can remember exactly where I was in '56 when I first heard his magnificent voice.
And yet, it is only a couple of months since I last saw him "live" at Casino
Rama in Ontario, Canada.Most piano players would kill just to be able to do the
thrilling boogie-woogie bass work he does.And that's just his left hand!How
fortunate we are that, in Whoopi Goldberg's great phrase: "The Beauty Is Still
On Duty"Retirement? Don't bet on it. He !
wouldn't know what to do with himself.Little Richard was BORN to rock!Sincerely,Frankie Connolly

Dear Little Richard and fans. One of my best childhood memories is Little
Richard records Send me some lovin and Lucille. I would jump with joy every time
my dear grandma would put your records on for me to hear. Both my aunt and dad
bought your records when they were teenagers,and grandma knew I would love ,
love, love your music too. She would call your song "La Lucia".It was the most
heart pounding rhythmn the human ear has been graced with. You are the greatest
rock and roll artist of all time.Thank you for bringing me and my family such
joy with your music.I now play your music to my 3 year old son.
Thanks for everything. I had the chance to see Little Richard 6 times:
06.07.96 - Munich, Germany - Circus Krone - 19.07.97 - Essen, Germany -
Grugahalle - 23.07.98 - Munich, Germany - Olympiahalle - 28.07.98 - Zurich,
Switzerland - Hallenstadion - 04.07.00 - Mannheim, Germany - Maimarkthalle -
05.07.00 - Zurich, Switzerland - Hallenstadion. Now you're retiring. But your
music will live on forever!! And I know, someday we'll meet again in heaven.
Wolfgang Guhl 2002-12-16
Happy birthday! I remember being with you onstage in Denmark 1998, one of my
greatest moments. Sorry to hear that you are retiring, but I'll remember you!

Belated 70th birthday greetings to the emancipator, the originator of rock
'n' roll! Hard to believe you are 70, you don't look a day over 50! Keep on
rockin', even in your retirement, maybe you can still do a guest appearance from
time to time. God bless you Richard!
Ron Fowler 2002-12-08
I´ve never been a particular Little Richard fan, until he performed live on
stage i Esbjerg in Denmark at the Legends of Rork ´n´roll festival 2001.Until
this time I´ve been a fan of Elvis, Shakin Stevens, and Jerry lee Lewis
a.s.o.But he Took My Heart that night. He truely are the Architekt of R´n´r.He´s
Performance is the best I´ve ever seen. And I´ve seen such greats as: Chuck
berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Shakin Stevens, Cliff Richard, Status Quo, and Brian
Setzer. But Little Richards Show was above them all.He´s number one!!! No Doubt.
Jonny Petersen 2002-12-07

Richard i was just listening to long tall sally again and there is just NO
words to describe the sheer class of that song. also i must ask, if you can
answer,are you still alive today??? because someone told me you were now with
god, or maybe they said you were a god i cant remember too well, anyway i still
love you man. i have now got my hair to look exactly like yours as i just want
to be like you in every way i can!!!!
William Gibson 2002-11-30

Riyad Ateshin 2002-11-30
Hi there Richard.Well first of all let me just say....King Among Men!!!I have
your greatest hits album,and i have to say long tall sally is the song more
me.The lyrics in it and the sheer presence of your voice is breathtaking.You are
the man.If i could be anyone in this world it would be you.Are you ever going to
tour???Plzzzz say yes.And if you do tour i think you think tour with one Lionel
Richie.As i think both of yous would make a great duo.I am your biggest
fan...Little Richard,i wish you were my Father!!!!

The Originator, the Emancipator and the Architect of Rock and Roll.. No one
else has ever tried to claim this title, you'll find no Little Richard
impersonators... he is the Genuine Article, and we who grow up listenung to his
music will always be indebted to him. God Bless You.
J Fry 2002-11-25
I grew up listening to Little Richard and I loved it and still do.Little
Richard sure knows how to rock the house.In mmy book there is no one that can
top Little Richard then and now.We love you Little Richard and you are loved by
lots of people today.Take care and enjoy yourself because we don't realize it
untill we get older but life is so short and I know you have enjoyed your life
and we have enjoyed you.
Dorothy Baskin 2002-11-25
The music that I grew up listening to. Hey, in a Saturday night burnout,
dragracing, if you really wanted your car to reel and rock you had Little
Richard blaring on the radio or eight -track tape. That was the way to go.
Thanks to Little Richard for the Music.Best Regards, Morgan

César Augusto de Freitas Azevedo 2002-11-13
Little Richard: I am 22 years old and a "long-time" fan. I started off as a
Jerry Lee fan, but as soon as I got my hands on one of your live recordings, I
saw the light! I feel like I was born in the wrong era and your plans of
retiring from the limelight only strengthen this feeling. Good golly, your last
two concerts here in the Netherlands were a revalation! I had never before heard
such a "hard rock & roll" sound, with your fantastic band with two drummer-boys.
I wished during those performances that everyone on the planet could be there.
You completely outrocked Jerry Lee and poor old Chuck. You are alive and I want
you to rock 'til you drop! You wouldn't want white guys like me to take over and
travel around doing Little Richard impersonation acts, would you?
Andre Gussekloo 2002-11-11
Great to be back on the Little Richard news site. I remember all my 17 shows
I have seen with LR. But I hoop it will be some more before he returns. We are
many fans in Sweden and we hoop the promotor will go on for an Scandinavian tour
very soon. The five concerts in Sweden 1990 is a model for a great rock'n'roll
tour. I remember the 3 hour (TV filmed) dynamite show in Malmö and the raining
but rockin' show in Borgholm. I know LR will allways Roll Over Beethoven!

Hello Little Richard, thank you for the last ten years that i saw you on more
than 30 concerts all over the world. First time I get to know you in person on
Nov. 28th, 1992, shortly before you was 60 years old. It was at the sportpaleis
in Antwerpen / Belgium (more than 12000 peolpe) at the Diamond Award Show. Last
concert that i saw you was in Aug. 5th, 2001 in Las Vegas at the Sam's Town
Hotel. I hope that you will not completly retireing from stage. I hope that you
will give from time to time a few concerts or TV apperance. And i hope that you
will make a new CD with Rock'n'Roll songs in the old style, but not
re-recordings of your old songs like "Goog Golly Miss Molly" or Lucille, i mean
new songs in the style of "Get Rhythm" or "Elevator Operator". And now to all
Little Richard fan's worldwide. I'm a crazy fan and i collect all from Little
Richard. If you have something, so please let me know and write me an E-Mail to
: email@example.com or send
me a lette!
r to following address : Michael Neubert, Oeslauer Str.116, 96472 Roedental, Germany. O.K. that's all. Best Regards and "Keep on Rocking !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Richard,I brought your greatest hits to our office today (a Canadian
UNiversity History Department) and we played it through lunch and into the
afternoon. It brought great joy to faculty and students; Good Night Irene was
out of sight. As they say in Australia, "Good on ya, Mate!" All the best from
the McMaster University History Department.

I saw you once Little Richard and you were HUGE. I always thought with the
name "little" richard you would be a really tiny fella but it's just not so. It
might be less confusing for your fans if you dropped the "little".

I am a huge little richy fan and I love talking to other fans. My favorite

Mr. Penniman, You more or less created a genre, rock'n'roll. No matter who
does or doesn't acknowledge your achievements, music listeners know that you
gave "rock" an edge, an excitement that no one else has. You should thank God
for your gifts and the gift to communicate with them. Thank you for giving us so
much excitement. Sincerely, Felix

Anita Brenner 2002-08-22
Hi Richard, I wrote you a rather long message in the e-mail on this
website.I heard you retiring:( We have a lot in common. I seen you at
Arlington SDA Church, I used to send your mother mailings from the Riverside SDA
Church when I was their secretary. I knew where she lived on Lincoln Ave and in
Rubideaux. Funny, I can't remember how to spell it anymore? I remember when you
lost your mother about the same time I lost my mine. I was born at LLUMC and
lived in Riverside for 43 years. I now reside in the Pacific Northwest (retired).
I attend the Friday Harbor SDA Church. If you are ever in this area, near San
Juan Island, I invite you attend our church. We are small and we are family.I
will miss seeing you on TV. My husband used to attend your concerts at the
Riverside Municipal Auditorium. Alas, I wasn't allowed to go, I was too young
(I'm 54). My parents were strict SDA. I have always loved you, your music and
fantastic personality. You are KING of !
R&R! I pray you have a great retirement and that we may meet someday on that far away shore beyond the sunset. I know both our mama's will be there and that's my goal, too. I made a promise to my parents I would see them again.May God bless you greatly in the years to come!Love and much admiration. You're the best!Linda (Vaughn) SmithPS you may have heard of my brother Donald Jon Vaughn. He was a music professor for La Sierra University and the organist at La Sierra U. for 40 years. He is widely known in those parts.I've been to the Rock 'n Roll Seattle Center Experience Music Project Museum (EMP) and don't recall seeing a display of anything related to you. Somebody needs to tell Paul Allen! He is a neighbor on the next Island over, Lopez Island.It's gorgeous here, please come and visit us at out church sometime. We'll all give you a great big hug. In fact, I might be able to arrange for you to stay at a member's bed and breakfast on Lopez Island and they can fly (!
10 minute flight)you to church to worship with us. We hav!
e a former Conference president as a pastor. He's very good.We have the SDA Washington Conference Health Van at out County fair right now. It's not easy spreading the word on these Islands, so our church remains quite small.We'd love having you if you get up to the seattle area.
Linda (Vaughn) Smith 2002-08-16
Hello Little Richard, I saw you today [Monday, 8/12/2002] on 'Time and Again'.
Yes, you are the greatest and the Architect, Creator, Emancipator, Inventor,
King, Originator of Rock and Roll, as well as a genuine inspiration.

player? PS.Your still #1 and pretty....
Doug Neale 2002-08-05
Richard, I saw you on the Late Show this week and David Letterman said you are
retiring. I hope this is not so as you are one of the few original 50's rockers still
performing. Even if touring is getting to be too hard, I would hope you could still do the
occasional tv show or recording project. Your band is awesome and you can still rock
better than anyone. Chuck Berry is 75 and working on a new album, Bo Diddley is still
touring, but where is Fats Domino? Retired. The Everly Brothers retired last summer. Elvis
Presley, Buddy Holly, Rick Nelson, Roy Orbison, Charlie Rich, Eddie Cochran, all these
guys are gone. Keep on rockin' Richard, you are the best!
Ron Fowler 2002-08-02

Hi Richard, I saw your show in Mississippi at one of the casinos on 7/13/02. You
looked great and so was your show. I've always seen you on TV and never in person.
It was a real treat. I also was thrilled when you let the young singer from the
Appollo sing. Boy can he sing!! It was great to see you express your belief in God
and encourage others. Keep up the good work. God Bless.
Art Lady 2002-07-17
Wow what a great website , I've always had the firm belief that Little Richard is the
greatest singer in history , I'm only 16 and I come from North Yorkshire in Great Britain
, a world apart from Little Richard and yet still his music has been able to capture me ,
I truley love his music and always will .... PEACE!
