This is to you ignorant "hipster" scumfucks who walked out on Little Richard during his first song at the Bite of Oregon. Let me explain something to you. If it wasn't for Little Richard (and Chuck Berry, Elvis, and many other pioneers of rock 'n' roll) your sissified little "indierock" bands wouldn't even exist. The man has been performing for 50 FUCKING YEARS!!! Do you think that 50 years from now people will still be listening to your precious White Stripes? Or Sleater-Kinney? Or the Decemberists? FUCK NO!!! You had a chance to witness an event that you could have told your grandchildren about and you turned around and left with your fucking noses in the air. You people make me want to puke.—Anonymous
