Subject: RE: Obit: ‘Little’ Richard Penniman (1932-2020)
When he got the chance he was a hell of a bluesman. Bob Hite and Canned Heat gave him that chance in the late 60's and he forgot the showmanship and got down deep and dirty with his Blues Roots. I wish there was some film of that period in his life. All we have is Fito De la Parras' account of his performance in the Canned Heat Biography 'Living the Blues'
RIP Little Richard
