RnR: Elvis and Little Richard

Tutti Frutti

 

 

 

Long Tall Sally

 

 

 

 

Little Richard lurched between rock n roll hellfire and gospel glaze, dropping in and out of a music career and tormented by his sexuality. Religion is never the cure for the problem it creates.

 

Lawdy Miss Clawdy

 

 

Elvis too was driven by a spiritual zeal and I wonder how he reconciled his image as a Christian with all the other religions he explored privately

 

art is perhaps working through those emotional conflicts

 

 

why I am frustrated that creativity is so often merged with mental health

 

 

feelings conflicts

 

perhaps there are no lessons to be learned when things work smoothly
