It's impossible to list all the major rock stars that the late Little Richard influenced. His look, sound, and attitude really wrote the blueprint for what it means to be a rock star, and tons of the most major artists of all time covered his songs (and often became popular for their own versions). The Beatles had no lack of Little Richard covers, and his music was also performed by Elton John, Eric Clapton, The Kinks, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Queen, Motorhead, Scorpions, Bruce Springsteen, The Band, The Animals, Fleetwood Mac, T. Rex's Marc Bolan, The Zombies, Deep Purple, and that's really just a small sample size. Listen to all of those artists' covers of Little Richard below...
