Little Richard


American musician and minister alternately, the self-styled King of rock'n'roll. He was famed for his frantic and furious performances with the lyrics shouted out gospel style. Erratic and unpredictable, in 1957 he renounced music and joined the ministry but came back to rock and soul in 1964. In 1977 he was once again a gospel minister, renouncing the secular world in favor of gospel tours.

The third of 12 kids, he had a large head in proportion to his body and his right leg is shorter than the left.
