Folks, I am on the dead side of brain dead from travel and rockin' and rollin' but here is a short clip, with more to follow when the fog has cleared. Richard was oh-so-awesome last night in New Orleans. He was dressed all in white with silver trim and he absolutely glowed. Songs included many of the classics as well as "Baby What You Want Me to Do", which was the first time I heard this live. He looked like he felt well and was in great voice. I'll fill in the gaps by Sunday...Rock on...Nurse Nancy

Richard Lover!

Sorry if I confused anyone with the "short clip" comment. I meant it journalistically as in "a small part of". Video is not allowed and I would never do that. Another audience member took some excellent photos and I will be glad to forward those if you want them. I will write a longer note about the show tonight or tomorrow. Thanks...Nurse Nancy

At this venue they were allowed from the audience, but not on the stage. I would never be so rude as to flaunt the rules. Nancy

Richard Lover!

Richard does not allow any photos being taken.

Concerning rules, I only follow them when they make sense. Or would you follow a rule that says "Jump out of the window", too?

It's important to ask an attendant/guide if the artist will allow photographs. If he/she does, the fan must learn if it's only for a certain segment of the show, and from what vantage point. Also, if flashbulbs are allowed!

The First Nurse of R & R did the respectful thing.

You want your picture taken after working in the backyard for two hours? The human element, my friend.

Let's all enjoy the true King and realize that he came back more than once to rock and roll for us. He's now 75. If he wants his shows represented a certain way, that's the way to go.

Of course Richard came up with Chuck and Elvis and Fats and the Everlys, Ruth Brown, Lavern Baker, and Hank Ballard. They forged a new medium, and...learned the hard way. All should have made about a half a billion.

Oh my Soul!

I was going to expand on my post about the New Orleans performance, but it seems my posts are somehow taken wrong and I garner only sarcastic replies, so I choose to no longer put myself out there for that. I will post when I am going to see a show and if any of you want to hear about it let me know and I'll email it to you. Nancy

Richard Lover!

Hi Nancy

You are obviously someone who cares about and respects Little Richard - which is the reason we're here - and you always try to do the right thing. Your posts are greatly appreciated by Richard fans, so please don't be put off.

Wish I could have been at the show in New Orleans - or any of the others you've described for us.

Best wishes


Michael

Thank you, Michael. As one who most certainly does revere and respect LR, I appreciate it when someone understands that. If you would like to read the expanded version of the show, email me at NJCRN@aol.com and I will send it to you. Rock on...Nurse Nancy

Richard Lover!
