Ladies and Gentlemen....Little Richard

Partly to commemorate David Kirby's recently published book about Little Richard, and partly to reassert that Little Richard is a raving lunatic, I present to you this video of the former Richard Penniman live in Paris in 1966. Long before his Hollywood Squares days.

Great clips. Kirby's book is excellent and inspired a recent post on my own blog Carnival Saloon:
