Little Richard died Saturday Morning. Danny Penniman, his son, confirmed the death of his father to Rolling Stone.
His most famous hits included “Good Golly Miss Molly”, “Tutti Frutti” and “Long Tall Sally” during the 50’s.
His entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, put him alongside James Brown, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and of course Elvis Presley.
He sold more than 30 million records worldwide.
No cause of death has been given.
Born Richard Penniman, his music helped break up racial segregation in music.
In an interview he once said “I’ve always thought that rock ‘n’ roll brought the races together. Although I was black, the fans didn’t care. I used to feel good about that.”
