Almost all his big hits were the result of ONE recording session. Do yourself a favor and listen to a 'Best of' mix even if it's only YouTube. Truly one of a kind. How could you ever fill those shoes?

Sad to see him go. But, man, what what a run!

I posted this on Facebook, but thought it merited a post here as well...

This is my favorite celebrity encounter.
Way back in 1990s, I was flying back to Atlanta and got to LAX at a crazy early time.
There was no one in the terminal departure area when I got there, except for Little Richard.
He was all sequins and makeup at 5:30 in the morning. I looked around thinking this was a Twilight Zone episode.
I think I said out loud, "Holy crap! Little Richard?".
Are you headed to Atlanta he asked. Yes, that's home I replied.
"Another Georgia Peach," he said. I was still just sort of dumbstruck.
"What's your favorite Little Richard song?" he asked.
"Keep a Knockin'" I replied, like I had been ready for this moment my whole life.
And then he sang it. RIP Georgia Peach.
