Chuck Berry (1926-2017) is credited with writing the songs and creating the instrumentals that shaped rock and roll - and for setting the standard for live stage performances. Known for hits "Maybellene", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Johnny B. Goode" and "Rock and Roll Music", Berry began starring in stage extravaganzas in New York City early in his career and continued to delight live audiences with his showmanship and rock and roll shows in his 80s. Little Richard, born Richard Wayne Penniman in 1932, was a rock 'n' roll pioneer with such hits as "Tutti Frutti", "Long Tall Sally" and "Good Golly, Miss Molly". The singer, songwriter, and pianist, who began performing in the 1940s and made his first recording in 1951, brought energy and excitement to his stage performances, and his style influenced later artists such as Otis Redding, Paul McCartney, Mick Jaggger, and David Bowie. Richard quit the secular music business in 1957, becoming a minister and recording only Gospel songs. In 1962, on a European tour with Billy Preston, Little Richard, who had intended to perform only Gospel songs, was lured into playing some of his old hits. His opening act on that tour was an unknown British group called The Beatles, and Little Richard would introduce another group, The Rolling Stones, in 1963, and he would add an unknown Jimi Hendrix to his band in 1964. Little Richard remains a popular performer on music revival tours, music videos, films and on records. In 2007, he performed in front of the White House for a PBS special that was broadcast on the Fourth of July, and was back to celebrate A Capitol Fourth in 2010. Both men are charter members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1986). Fine condition.
