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. Richard turns out to be a highly conflicted person, constantly embracing and then rejecting his musical legacy. Like many rock bios, salacious stories of drugs and sex perm This book tells the life story of Little Richard from early Childhood to the 1990s.

Little Richard is America. White, a British rock-columnist, packs more hyperbole and music-history ignorance into his three-page preface than you'd think possible.

The book gives a good insight into the wild life of Little Richard which rings true but is nonetheless shocking even for an. .Despite what VH1-type music channels imply, Little Richard is the most influential rock artist of all time.

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.

AWOP-BOP-A-LOO-MOP-ALOP-BAM-BOOM---tutti fruitti--
good booty---if it don't fit--don't force it---
you can grease it---make it easy...... (these were
the original words).

Little Richard...Richard glitters like an exotic jewel
----dispenser of joyous mayhem. He is the one and only.
No one before or after comes close to be as talented as
him. He is a super star.

Richard tells you that he has a big head, tiny body, one
short leg, one big eye and one little eye. But look at
what he has done with his imperfections. This book ends
in 1984 at the time when he had retired from music, being
gay and become a preacher...for the 2nd time. We all
know that did not last long. He is a born entertainer.
He could not give up the life. Be prepared...this book
has lots of sexual experiences talk...It can be a l
ittle startling (GROSS!).

I liked this book and found it very interesting. I
think the author did a fine job. Richard held nothing
back from him. Richard was at a Indian casino in my area
in 2008 and played to a sold out crowd. He makes you feel
good and happy. He is CRAZY. He does not have a sane bone
in his body.

* I also suggest you read BROTHER RAY..by Ray Charles.
Good book.

This book is funny, insightful into Little Richard's rise and well written. It takes you throughout his early beginnings as a church child who was molested and his struggles in coming to terms with his sexuality all the way to how he became a bawdy rock and roll singer who wowed the masses with his flamboyant style and pipes. Definitely worth the money.

Little Richard is an undeniable rock and roll icon with a colorful and interesting background. This books give a little insight into
the life he's lead and the choices he has made. He was cool before the word cool was ever used.

Very complete and interesting history

There are lurid details (sex, drugs, excrement) of Little Richard's life in the book that might be 'too much information.' As I read, I wondered how I would scrub those sordid images from my mind. Words in the book from Little Richard's own sermons provided balance and relief.

The book has so many direct quotes from Little Richard, that it actually has the flavor of an autobiography. He was unfalteringly honest and frank.

I found this book to be an interesting peek into the mind of someone who is very competitive, as Little Richard was determined to outperform anyone else he was staged with. It also offers insights to the gay community.

He is a beautiful man with an incredible voice. When my children were small, I gave them his album of songs for children and he remains one of their (and mine) favorite performers.

Great Book

What can I say? If you have any interest in LR, this is the book. I had no idea how influential and connected he was in the music scene. Personal and insightful into the early life and times of the prime mover of Rock and Roll.
I've always pondered what type of life Little Richard had growing up, and now since the release of his autobiography, I don't have to ponder anymore. Little Richard had a fascinating life growing up. His mother married his father at age 13, and she became the strength of the family. It's really interesting hearing how he was confronted with the injustice and unfairness during those days. Little Richard was an amazing talent who didn't receive his just dues for his contribution to Rock and Roll, but he always remained positive and should go down in history as one of the greatest song writer and entertainer of all times.
