 Cry

A true legend, and, as with Scotty Moore, I count myself lucky beyond measure to have seen him live. He was 72 then, and he was, obviously, not as physically active as in his youth, but he could still holler the way he did as a young 'un.

He was one of my earliest idols, and by far my favourite rocker, R.I.P, Mr Penniman.

Little Richard. Only a few can truly deserve the honour of being called an original Rock'n Roller. Chuck, Jerry and Richard. The era really has ended...

If you want to see how Richard could whip up an audience, check out "Dont Knock The Rock" on YouTube. Blistering...

Little Richard could hit one note on that piano and just sing 'Oooooh' and it was better than 3/4 of other stuff out there

Very sad about Little Richard. He played a free show at the University of Texas Forty Acres Festival in 2007, and for no particular reason I didn't go. (This seems to be a recurring theme.)  It turned out to be one of his last live performances before hip trouble sidelined him permanently.

I did get to see Chuck Berry, B.B. King, and (still kicking) Jerry Lee Lewis. Not to mention Tony Bennett, Burt Bacharach, and Frankie Valli (all still vertical and performing no less). So I got that going for me.

I remember that song. For some reason I'd have thought the singer would be much older.

Noooooooo... Phil May of the Pretty Things.  RIP Phil.

This from Shindig on FB:

Very sad news just in.

PHIL MAY

9 November 1944 – 15 May 2020

Lead singer with legendary, cult, first-wave, British, R&B band The Pretty Things dies following tragic accident.

It is with very deep sadness that the management of the Pretty Things have to announce the death of the band’s lead singer, Phil May.

Phil May passed away at 7.05am on Friday 15 May at the Queen Elizabeth hospital, Kings Lynn, Norfolk. He was 75. He had been locked down in Norfolk with his family and, during the week Phil had suffered a fall from his bike and had undergone emergency hip surgery, after which complications set in.

The Pretty Things first came to prominence in the 1960s when they caused great controversy because of the length of their hair and outrageous behaviour. Fights at shows were commonplace and questions were even asked in parliament. But over the years the band retained their uncanny relevance across generations of rock music.
The Pretty Things were fundamental in the development of British music. They enjoyed much critical success and were a huge influence on artists as diverse as David Bowie, Aerosmith, The Ramones, Bob Dylan, The Sex Pistols, The White Stripes, Kasabian, The Lightning Seeds and countless more.

The band created a rich music catalogue including top-level albums such as The Pretty Things, S.F. Sorrow & Parachute, and remained a significant artistic and creative force throughout their entire 55+ year career. They continue to release iconic and influential recordings, right up to the present day, with a new album due for release this year.
Phil had been in poor health for some time when the Pretty Things played their last live concert, ‘The Final Bow’, on 13 December 2018 at the Indigo, O2 where they were joined onstage by old friends David Gilmour and Van Morrison.

Phil May leaves behind his son, Paris May, his daughter, Sorrel May and his partner, Colin Graham.

There's an obituary to my cousin John Cumming in today's Guardian but I've written my own little tribute to him after seeing Sonny Rollins post about him on Twitter.
