This very special issue of Vintage Rock magazine tells the story of rock’n’roll innovator Little Richard and his unstoppable rise to the top of the charts.

Inside you’ll find:

Little Richard – The man who broke down racial barriers and changed rock ‘n’ roll forever with a shrieking vocal and pounding piano style all his own – We chart the life and career of the trailblazing typhoon










The Big Bopper  – From larger than life disc jockey to chart-topping rock’n’roll star, the Big Bopper injected some fun into the rockin’ scene and helped pioneer the music video in the process










Del Shannon – Shannon’s No 1 chart smash Runaway brought him global stardom










Charlie Feathers – We uncover the rockabilly pioneer who played a vital role in the fifties scene with his own raw take on rockabilly guitar, leaving a musical legacy that’s impossible to ignore










Etta James – Rhythm and blues royalty, crossover superstar… Etta James may have had it all when it came to music but she lived a turbulent and tragic life of personal trauma and addiction

Vince Taylor – Taylor was the leather-clad rocker who crossed the channel to deliver an unforgettable stage act and a fiery image that’s forever burned into the annals of European rock’n’roll history

Connie Francis – She was the first female teen to hit big in the UK and soon became the undisputed number one female singer of the late ’50s and ’60s. We discover a success story tinged with sadness

James Brown – We track the early days of Brown’s career, before he became known as the Godfather Of Soul
