Do you know Esquerita? Little Richard copied all his outrageousness but had more success, maybe LR was a little more tamed down for the general public. Anyhow he gets a "Higher the Hair the Closer to God" award.
Named "The White James Brown" soul singer Wayne Cochran had the biggest blond afro in show business. I must give him the up most of my hair respect because not only did he dance and sweat under that hugemungus pompador but he also bleached the heck out of his tresses. What kind of mojo was he workin'?
