Rock n’ roll trailblazer, Little Richard, died yesterday (Saturday, 9th May 2020) at the age of 87. It is a great loss for the world of rock n’ roll, since Little Richard was one of the architects of rock n’ roll music, a father of the whole rock n’ roll genre with classic hits, like “Tutti Frutti”, “Lucile”, “Keep a Knockin'” and “Long Tall Sally”. As it was written in CNN, Little Richard was like no other: a flamboyant, makeup-wearing, piano-playing black man who personified the “devil’s music” to establishment guardians. 

Dick Alen, his former agent, confirmed his death. Alen said Little Richard died in Nashville with his brother and son by his side, and the cause of death is related to bone cancer.

Goodbye to one of the originators of rock n’ roll…
