Little Richard - Keep A Knockin'

"Keep A Knockin'" is a song written years before Little Richard recorded his own iconic version. The song originated from the 1920's and was covered by many artists even before Richard such as Louie Jordan.

But once Little Richard recorded his version in 1957 he changed it forever! Little Richard put his signature boogie woogie, rock and roll/R&B flavor into the song and it has influenced countless musicians after him to record their own renditions. The opening drum intro influenced Led Zeppelin's drummer John Bonham in the intro to their song "Rock and Roll" from 1971. Led Zeppelin knew the roots of Rock and Roll music, so they decided to pay homage to Little.

Richard might not have gotten a lot of, or enough, credit back when he was recording his classic hits, but at least his music was able to live on for countless generations that have come, and will continue to come after him!

One of my favorite quotes from Little Richard is:
"Elvis may be the King of Rock and Roll, but I am Queen!"
Who COULDN'T LOVE Little Richard!?!?! God bless you Richard!
