Childhood home of Little Richard in Macon, Georgia USA 3
Georgia, USA
The childhood home in Macon, Georgia of rock pioneer Richard Wayne Penniman, later to be known as “Little Richard”. Born on Dec. 5, 1932, he was one of 12 children. His father, Bud, was a brick mason, moonshine peddler, and operator of a juke joint called the Tip In Inn.” Penniman started in music performing in a family gospel group. He had a part-time job at the City Auditorium and heard many big rhythm-and-blues and gospel acts. Leaving for Atlanta with a traveling medicine show at 14, he took the stage name “Little Richard” at 15 years old. RCA signed a record contract with Penniman. But, his father was murdered and, to support his family, he washed dishes at a Greyhound bus station in Macon. Later he was back on stage with a hot new R&B band, the Upsetters. In New Orleans in September 1955 he recorded his classic hit “Tutti Frutti,” launching him as a rock pioneer. Other of his hits include “Good Golly Miss Molly” in 1958, “Long Tall Sally“, and “Lucille“.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
