We all know Little Richard as a famous musician born in 1932, but how well do you really know him? In an interview with Little Richard he mentioned that he actually started recording in 1951, but didn't have his first hit till 55'. When asked what influences have made an impact on him musically he said "When I was a child I joined a church choir. This was where I started singing and was inspired to continue with music. As well, religion has taken a great role in my career." He also gave us an inside scoop on his new song he will be releasing in a couple of months. He said " I had a great time recording my new song, "Good Golly Miss Molly". It was my second favorite song to record aside Lucille." We also asked him what was his early life was like and his response was " Well, as a teen I traveled in medicine shows. I also enjoyed singing in a gospel group when I was a child. As a child of twelve my parents were constantly running around to keep us all happy so it was hard to find time to focus on my schoolwork." Finally we mentioned to him, what were his best hits that's he's recorded. " A personal best of mine was "Long Tall Sally" as well as " Rip it up" both in 1956."
