Legendary Rock and Roll Musician Little Richard Dies of Bone Cancer at 87

Little Richard, the rock and roll trailblazer known for his electrifying stage presence and lively piano skills, has died. He was 87.

The “Good Golly Miss Molly” singer’s agent of 40 years, Dick Alen, confirmed the musician’s death to PEOPLE.

“Little Richard passed away this morning from bone cancer in Nashville. He was living with his brother in Nashville,” Alen tells PEOPLE. “He was battling for a good while, many years. I last spoke to him about two or three weeks ago. I knew he wasn’t well but he never really got into it, he just would say ‘I’m not well.’ He’s been suffering for many years with various aches and pains. He just wouldn’t talk about it much.”

Kelvin Holly, a longtime member of the musician’s band, shared a touching tribute on social media. “Rest in peace Richard. This one really stings. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of my bandmates and fans all over the world. Richard truly was the king!”
