After watching this clip from the 1973 documentary about Jimi Hendrix (appropriately titled Jimi Hendrix), I simply have to say that Little Richard may very well be the single greatest individual ever. Don’t believe me? Well, then watch the above clip, sucker!
Special thanks to Sid Hillman, Greg Vincent, and Thom Arredondo for showing me this clip back in the awesome days at UCLA’s Audio Visual Services (AVS). It has been stuck in my mind for a solid 15 years.
