Rock 'n Roll Origins : Little Richard

September 14, 1955, Little Richard entered a New Orleans recording studio to begin two days of recording. Things were not going well and during a break, Richard and his producer went to the Dew Drop Inn for lunch. Richard started playing the piano in the bar singing a lewd version of ‘Tutti Frutti.’ With only 15 left in the session, Richard recorded the song and coined the phrase, “a-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-lop-bam-boom.”
