Famous for inventing Rock'N'Roll, Little Richard pushed the traditional boundaries of music with his high speed tunes, wild vocal rang and riot inducing live shows, without Little Richard even taught Paul McCartney how to go WOO!

The worlds most popular rock musicians have all shared their tributes, including Mick Jagger, Dave Grohl, Jimmy Page, Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr and heaps more:

 Rock would sound very different without Little Richard.
