Great story alert!
Here’s a wonderful feature on a National Treasure… Little Richard. When I wrote a semi-regular “Atlanta/Macon Report” in Record World back in the early ’70s, the Capricorn Records crew took me down to the Macon bus station to show me where Little Richard had been a bus boy/short order cook at 16. Little Richard’s impact on Jimi Hendrix certainly held sway with Duane Allman. The Oxford American continues to deliver meaningful insight into the cultural impact of Southern Music.
