LITTLE RICHARD, a/k/a Richard Penniman, who combined the sacred shouts of the black church and the profane sounds of the blues to create some of the world’s first and most influential rock ’n’ roll records, died of bone cancer on Saturday morning in Tullahoma, Tenn. He was 87.  Here's the Rolling Stone obit, as well as a self-profile Little Richard wrote for the magazine in 2004. Tributes have poured in from Mick Jagger & Keith Richards, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr, Pete Best, Brian Wilson, Jimmy Page, Chuck D, Slash, Chance the Rapper, Dave Davies, Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake, Lloyd Cole, Stephen Malkmus, Jason Isbell, and many more.

THE NUMBER ONES looks at Stars On 45's "Stars On 45," an extremely strange Dutch Beatles-impersonator disco megamix that somehow blew up in the US.
