The world has lost another legend. Little Richard, one of rock's founding fathers who set the template that generations of musicians would follow, has passed away at 87. "Tutti Frutti,” “Good Golly Miss Molly” and “Long Tall Sally” are songs that have been woven into the tapestry of music history. Little Richard's flamboyant style and amazing piano skills set the tone for a generation of musicians from Elvis & James Brown to artist's today.
The musician’s son, Danny Penniman, confirmed the music pioneer’s death to Rolling Stone, but said the cause of death was unknown.
