RIP to a legend and one of my all time favorite musicians. 2020 is being a sad year so far.

Wow! He was the guy who did the Magic School Bus theme and also appeared in a Tostitos Gold commercial. Such good memories.

Ah, too bad.

Always admired how he stuck with Little Richard and didn't go the rapper route and start calling himself Lil' Rich.

@angeldeb82: I know you didnt mean it bad, but I hope Little Richard will be remembered for more than a Tostitos commercial. Of course he was huge way before most of our time, but he was at the time a true world class star up there with the best of them.

I heard songs like "Chain of Fools" so much growing up, this was my father's music so it's all ingrained into my childhood.

Little Richard was there at the very start of Rock, sometimes hard to believe that's still within living memory.

I had no idea he was still alive. Little Richard hasn't appeared anywhere in decades.

R.I.P Richard :(

Little Richard was one of the pioneers of rock & roll, along with Chuck Berry (who died in 2017). RIP legends.
