An article called "Prayers for [Little] Richard" provides some insight in to his current health.

 

 

After the Wildhorse, I talked to Richard a few more times briefly on the phone; he was always polite but wouldn’t budge on the topic of an interview. “I’ve been going through a lot of pain and stuff and it ain’t worth it to me,” he said. The last time we spoke, he told me, “I’m really not interested in that kind of thing right now, baby. I’ve been real sick. I’m sick, I’m really trying to get well, baby.”

 

 

 

It's uncanny how a lot of these weird coincidences happen, Just the day before your post, I received a record in the mail from a band called The Little Richards. They're a punk band led by Robert Lopez (El Vez - The Mexican Elvis) who perform covers of Little Richard songs.

Couple of minor rockabilly deaths this week - Mac Curtis and Marvin Rainwater. You don't really want links, do you?


Marvin Rainwater. The only way that guy could sound any more country is if his name was Cletus McMethteeth


And despite this he still scored a UK no.1 in the 50s with his song "Whole Lotta Woman"!
