RIP Little Richard

Little Richard, Founding Father of Rock Who Broke Musical Barriers, Dead at 87 
I know that everyone has heard about this by now - literally every single person that I know has posted about him on Facebook - but this is sad to hear. A truly groundbreaking artist in so many ways, he was torn before music and religion, as were so many of the early rockers, but he never lost his coolness. I used to see him all the time at the Hollywood Post Office where we both had PO Boxes and he never appeared without being fully decked out in his glamorous gorgeousness. The world would have been a much less interesting place without him.
