I would rate Little Richard above Chuck Berry, brilliant showman and really ahead of his time in terms of his flamboyance which inspired the likes of Prince in later years. It was pretty brave of him to appear that way in those times. At the other end of the scale Lemmy of Motorhead considered him the ultimate singer and cited him as a big influence. He always looked as if he was thoroughly enjoying himself which was so endearing. RIP Little Richard, a life well lived and an inspiration to many legends who followed him.

It's sad to lose Little Richard even though he's lived much longer than I'd imagined he would. He was probably the only person, or at least the only person still living until now, that almost every big rock star looked up to. Without him we wouldn't have many of the bands and singers we do today. Who do we have now with such a strong influence?
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
