    Great artist and one of the founders of the rock and roll genre. RIP Little Richard, in heaven say hello to the real King, Fats, Chuck, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Carl Perkins, Ike and Sam Phillips, the man that recorded the first rock and roll record. Should be one hell of an album.

    Ike may not be there.

    I think as the OP I should have a little say so in this thread and I saw the comment in question as a slap in a fellow Memphian's face.

    I know this happened 3 months ago, but I am now just barely hearing of Ja'Net DuBois passing. Wasn't a fan of Good Times, but I will always remember her singing the opening for The Jeffersons which is a show I love. RIP and glad she finally did move on up to meet Jesus.

    I only shared a tidbit about the late musician in the most respectful way. No comparison whatsoever.

    This is why I no longer pay membership.

    I remember the skits he did on Johnny Carson, he was funny, it's amazing how time goes by so fast, at least it does with me, feels like this year is ripping by far too fast, especially when I'd like to slow things down and enjoy the years I have left since shaking off the congestive heart failure I went through in 2018.

    Mrs. Annie Glenn, 100
    I don't know what to say. Mrs. Glenn was a lovely woman, an absolute joy. She was the epitome of old school grace and manners. Always kind and willing to help everyone.
    The world just became a bit smaller.
    Bless you, Annie Glenn
