Little Richard died Saturday morning in his Nashville home at the age of 87 from complications related to bone cancer. “Little Richard passed away this morning from bone cancer in Nashville. He was living with his brother in Nashville,” his son Danny Penniman said in a statement. “He was battling for a good while, many years. I last spoke to him about two or three weeks ago. I knew he wasn’t well but he never really got into it, he just would say ‘I’m not well.’ He’s been suffering for many years with various aches and pains. He just wouldn’t talk about it much.” Considered a founding father of rock ‘n’ roll, Little Richard — born Richard Wayne Penniman in 1932 — landed his first record deal in 1951.
Roy Leaves Siegfried After A Coronavirus Battle
Roy Uwe Ludwig Horn, half of Las Vegas icons Siegfried & Roy, has died at 75 from complications stemming from COVID-19. “Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend,” Siegfried Fishbacher, Horn’s collaborator (and long-rumored romantic partner) said in a statement. “From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried.” The German-born Horn met Siegfried on a cruise ship and bonded over Roy’s pet cheetah, Chico, which he had smuggled on board. The duo’s act began in Vegas in 1967.
