man, i saw little richard when he was 69. it kinda hurts me to say it and i wish it wasn't true, but he fucking stunk. he could barely move, couldn't play piano for longer than about 4 seconds, and seemed much more concerned with wiping the sweat from his brow than he was with playing a show. i mean, dude was pretty old, i ain't trying to bust his chops too much, but seems unbelievable that someone could've seen him 4 years after the show i saw, and think it was a great show. hey, maybe he had an off night when i saw him. i will say that i recorded it on my pocket tape recorder, and through my jeans and a sea of people, it sounded WAAAAY better than what was really coming out of the speakers.
