Wikipedia : This day (December 5, 1932), in Macon, Georgia, is born Richard Wayne Penniman a.k.a Little Richard, an American singer, songwriter and musician.

Little Richard Fansite : Driven by an incredible, hard-to-match energy which lends credence to his wild man of rock ’n’ roll image, Richard continues to tour extensively, delighting audiences with his unique blend of music and humor. Entertaining is a way to spread joy, says Richard. I’ve come to terms with that and with myself. You’ve got to do that before you can begin to help others.

@allmusic : Richard was at the height of his commercial and artistic powers when he suddenly quit the business during an Australian tour in late 1957, enrolling in a Bible college in Alabama shortly after returning to the States. Richard had actually been feeling the call of religion for a while before his announcement, but it was nonetheless a shock to both his fans and the music industry

@last.fm : Little Richard is an early pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll, influencing generations of R&B and rock artists. Many of his fans have proclaimed Richard as The Real King of Rock ‘n’ Roll (in reference to the deceased Elvis Presley, who’s known by the moniker “The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll”). He has also been called the King of Rockin ‘n’ Rollin, Rhythm & Blues Soulin’.
