Today’s Music to keep me SsSSAaAaAaaNNnneEeee in Isolation – Esquerita

Little Richard based a lot of his act and appearance on Esquerita. They tried to make him a replacement for Richard when he left the biz in the 50s. That didn’t work out.

His Rock stuff had all the Little Richard trademarks – the ooohs and aaahs – and his hairstyle had the biggest pompadour ever.

      1. I must say, it was really news. A similar thing happened before when someone told me David Lee Roth pulled a lot from Jim Dandy, and I thought, “Who’s Jim Dandy?” I love discovering these things and having my views shaken around a bit. Thanks, the guy is great. Hope you’re well!

      2. I’m well thanks Damone. I’m a mind of useless information on Rock Music. It comes from running a History of Rock course and writing books on it. Cheers Damone. Stay safe! Keep on Rockin’.

I'd like to hear from you...
