Added DiffLines:

* LastOfHisKind: With Music/ChuckBerry's death in 2017 and Music/FatsDomino's retirement in the 80s, Little Richard is essentially the last of the rock n roll pioneers who is still both alive and performing.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, he mounted several comeback attempts on a variety of labels, including Vee-Jay (with whom he had the hit "I Don't Know What You Got (But It's Got Me)", featuring the guitar playing of an obscure young session musician called JimiHendrix), Modern, Okeh and Reprise, though many of his efforts were just re-recordings of his Specialty hits. Eventually, after oscillating between his roles as a reverend and a rocker for nearly 20 years, he reconciled himself to rock and roll in the late 1980s, declaring that it could be used for good as well as evil.

* OlderThanTheyLook: Sure, he got cosmetic surgery, but [[http://www.bing.com/getimage?q=FCLB_9c91b5bb-327f-36c5-cd5f-9d2b55aafd48_2&wf=Genimage it seemed to have went well.]] He pretty much ''defines'' this trope. You would need to see his birth certificate to be convinced he's ''83''.
* OneWomanSong: "Good Golly Miss Molly", "Long Tall Sally", "Miss Ann", "Lucille", "Jenny, Jenny", "The Girl Can't Help It".
* RhymingWithItself: "Jenny, Jenny".

Things changed in 1957, when Richard, at the height of his success, announced that he was quitting rock and roll, and subsequently entered a seminary to become a priest. The precise reason for his decision isn't entirely clear, but the most common story is that Richard experienced a [[DreamingOfThingsToCome prophetic dream]] about the [[ApocalypseHow end of the world]], just before learning about the launch of the Soviet satellite Sputnik, compounded by a vision of angels supporting the wings of his plane to Australia when he thought it was crashing. He didn't quite music altogether, and went back to his gospel roots for several albums.

** He also elongates his "i"s into a falsetto.[[{{Aerosmith}} Steven Tyler]] seems to have borrowed this from him.
