Little Richard and Ike Turner at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio on April 2, 1998. 

Little Richard who was inducted into the Rock Hall in 1986, and Ike Turner in 1991, were longtime friends. Little Richard was used Ike’s piano intro on “Rocket 88″ for his song “Good Golly, Miss Molly.” Ike also said he had Little Richard in mind when he wrote songs for Tina Turner to sing. Little Richard wrote the introduction for Ike’s autobiography Takin’ Back My Name (1999) and

also spoke at his funeral in 2007. 

Little Richard: “When they first came to Los Angeles, I used to go over every day and Ike would be there with Tina and all of them. I remember when Tina couldn’t sing like she can today. Ike came and asked me to teach her. He asked me, ‘How would you sing this song?’ And when I sang, he would tell Tina, ‘Now that’s what I want you to do.’ But when she talks today she never mentions my name.”
