Sir Elton   shared a tribute for Little Richard on Instagram.

‘Without a doubt – musically, vocally and visually – he was my biggest influence.

‘Seeing him live in my teens was the most exciting event in my life at that point. Goosebumps, electricity and joy came from every pore.  ‘His records still sound fresh and the opening few seconds of “Tutti Frutti” are the most explosive in music history. ‘I was lucky enough to work with him for my “Duets” album in 1993. He was shy and funny and I was SO nervous. The track we recorded “The Power” is a favourite in my catalogue.  ‘We also played live at the Beverly Hilton and I felt like I’d died and gone to heaven.’ The Your Song singer ended his post with: ’He influenced so many and is irreplaceable.  ‘A true legend, icon and a force of nature. #RIP Little Richard. Love, Elton x #LittleRichard.’
