Figeac

Our next stop was Figeac which turned out to be a delightful place. It’s one of those ancient cities with narrow streets winding around the center too narrow for cars so parking was difficult. A lot of the building had these balconies on the top floor but used for storage years ago. There was, of course, a church, and this one had a really lovely chapel. A wood carving on theside walls. A hilly village as you can see with a San Francisco type curving street to goup and ...

Little Richard Burst Into the “Then-Macho World of Rock” and “Changed it Forever”

If Sister Rosetta Tharpe was the Godmother of Rock and Roll, then Little Richard, who passed away Saturday at the age of 87 from bone cancer, deserves to be its Godfather. This is no empty honorific, despite the fact that Tharpe was already touring the country as a teenage gospel prodigy in 1932 when Richard Penniman was born in Macon Georgia, and "other musicians,” including Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Bo Diddley, and Elvis Presley, “had already been mining a similar vein by the time [Lit...
