Little Richard (87) died Saturday at his Tenessee home, after being sick for two months. His son, Danny Jones Penniman, confirmed the death to the Rolling Stone magazine, yet the cause of it is unknown.

Although he never hit the top 10 again after 1958 songs like “Tutti Frutti,” “Long Tall Sally,” “Good Golly, Miss Molly” and “Lucille,” are at the core of Rock and Roll.
