Subject: RE: Obit: ‘Little’ Richard Penniman (1932-2020)
When Little Richard was genuinely little,
he went to a performance by
Sister Rosetta Tharpe,
and she anointed him, as it were, in front of the whole audience --
she was rock and roll before he was.

(Check out videos of her if you don't believe me)
