Rest in peace legend!

Founding father of rock'n'roll Richard Wayne Penniman, better known as Little Richard, died today at the age of 87. This American songwriter and musician decisively influenced the creation of what would become known as Rock'n'Roll in the mid-1950's. He added the rhythm of life to the existing blues of that time, thus creating a rhythm and blues that will evolve into R'n'R and will direct modern music in the direction and directions that are known to everyone, an extraordinary wealth!

Although this is a specific, tense and difficult time now, for reasons known to all of us, we should not omit to pay tribute to this great man who beautified the days of youth for many of us and even later, who loved rock'n'roll of course. Also known as an innovator, originator and architect of rock'n'roll, with his song, which was also his signature "Tutti Frutti" in 1955, he started a turning point that determined many sub-genres of modern music and gave birth to many masterpieces of the same music.

Truly a legend born once in a hundred years, I am sure more than that. A legend indeed!
