“The blues had an illegitimate baby and we named it rock 'n' roll.” Little Richard... What he failed to mention was the strong influence of two strong women of color. One was Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the first badass female guitarist, and the Godmother of Rock and Roll! Without her bringing Gospel to the streets, there wouldn't be the music we have today.
"If I do die sooner rather than later, I'll be satisfied with what I've done. I've had a good life, I've been around the world, met all kinds of people. I've made people laugh, I've fucked chicks of every colour, shape, religion and persuasion. I've had a whale of a time out of rock'n'roll, and rock'n'roll has had a whale of a time out of me. That'll do." This old bastard is 67 years old today and still more bad ass than ever. Happy birthday, Lemmy!
