Little Richard’s First Rule of Rock’n’Roll

Little Richard“You got what you wanted, but you lost what you had.”

1957: ‘ “Lu-CILLE! You won't do your sister's will!” came blaring through the house like a pack of rabid dogs. It was as if a Martian had landed.’

1987: John Waters finally meets Little Richard. It doesn't go well, but it’s entertaining. “What about the future?” I lamely ask, hoping for a few more minutes. “I was just offered a role with Gary Coleman. They wanted me to be his father. And they wanted me to weigh 300lb.”
