This is the story of Little Richard. Born Richard Wayne Penniman, he exploded onto the American music scene in 1955 with Awop-Bop-a-Loo-Mop Alop-Bam-Boom demolishing established musical structure and giving a whole generation a clarion-call to shake off the chains of repression. With songs like "Tutti Frutti," "Long Tall Sally," "Ready Teddy," "Lucille," "Good Golly Miss Molly," and many, many others, he single-handedly laid the foundations of a new music form, Rock 'n' Roll. His powerhouse voice and - outlandish appearance gave the twentieth century a freer spirit, allowing later rock legends like Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Elvis Presley, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, and Michael Jackson to do their own thing. Yet he has always been treated as a way-out demento, beyond ordinary comprehension or serious analysis. Until now ... This is the first UK edition. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 255 pages.
