Dave Casey ©Stars and StripesFrankfurt, Germany, March, 1993: Little Richard, known for classics as "Lucille," "Good Golly, Miss Molly," "Tutti-Frutti" and "Be-Bop-A-Lula," is in top form at age 60 during his 1993 tour of Europe. The music legend — real name: Richard Penniman — proclaimed himself "the architect of rock 'n' roll," and many would agree with that. The Beatles, after all, were his opening act at one point during their days in Hamburg.
