Beggars Banquet is the seventh British and ninth American studio album by The
Rolling Stones
. It was released by Decca Records in the United Kingdom and
London Records in the U.S. The album was a return to roots rock for the band
following the psychedelic pop of their 1967 album. It was the last Rolling Stones
album to be released during Brian Jones lifetime.

Beggars Banquet received a highly favorable response from music critics, who considered it a return to form for the Stones. It was also a commercial success,
reaching number 3 in the UK and number 5 in the US (on the way to eventual
platinum status).

Little Richard (Richard Wayne Penniman) is 84 years old today.

Little Richard infused gospel tones with blues music during his performances
as a teenager. He performed for the first time onstage when he was fourteen
and released his first single "Tutti Frutti" in 1955.

Richard has stated that,”I’m still singing. I don’t perform like I used to, but I
have my singing voice, I walk around, I had hip surgery a while ago but I’m
healthy.”
