Little Richard had hip replacement surgery in 2009, limiting his performance capabilities like Phil Collins has it now. “I’m sorry I can’t do it like it’s supposed to be done,” he told one audience in 2012. After the audience screamed back in encouragement, he said “Oh, you gonna make me scream like a white girl!”

When I first came along, I never heard any rock & roll. When I started singing [rock & roll], I sang it a long time before I presented it to the public because I was afraid they wouldn’t like it. I never heard nobody do it, and I was scared. 1990 interview in rolling Stone mag
