A candid portrait of rock star Little Richard details his early life, his meteoric rise to fame, his problems with drugs. He is a born entertainer. He could not give up the life.

Life and Times of Litt. This book tells the life story of Little Richard from early Childhood to the 1990s. Virtually the entire book is told in testimonials, with the majority of them coming from Richard himself. It was a fun but exhausting read.

The book gives a good insight into the wild life of Little Richard which rings true but is nonetheless shocking even for an open-minded reader. Yet,I can't help admire the man for giving it his all and the frank disclosure he affords in his book. This book does not fully explore the musical reason for that statement, but remains, almost 19 years after its' launch, perhaps the most literate pop music biography. It's amazing that so many rock culture writers apparently have not seriously referenced this book and learned of the importance of LR to RR.
When Little Richard burst onto the scene in the early 1950s, he sounded like nothing on earth. Drenched in sweat, screaming, hollering and pumping his piano, he made all who followed soud tame. His stage act was so explosive that for years people assumed the real man could never match the flamboyant public image. Here comes Charles White's sensational book exposing the even more astonishing life and times of Richard Wayne Penniman from Macon, Georgia. Illustrated with pictures from Little Richard's own archive and including a comprehensive discography.
