I did not realize that Little Richard had a part in promoting The Beatles.

What's interesting is that I've read in a couple articles today that Little Richard, after becoming a "born-again Christian", renounced his same-sex attraction. And yet my more liberal friends on Facebook who have posted about his death have NOT renounced him for that ….

And what's I've forgotten about some obscure one hit wonder, I believe that Jerry Lee Lewis is the last one left of the original, first generation rock and roll artists. Elvis, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Bill Haley, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Ike Turner, and dozens of other first generation rockers I could name, all dead. Jerry Lee Lewis seems to be the only one left. Kind of like how it seems that John Romita is the last of the silver age artists left. It's the end of an era.

A few others are still alive. Comic artists, that is.

Who? I've been thinking about it a long time, Jack Kirby, John Buscema, Garner Fox, Carmine Infantino, Gil Kane, Julius Schwartz, all gone, every time I think of someone, I look him up and find he's gone.

Of course, the definitions for Silver Age tend to be a little flexible, esp. on the latter end, but what you are looking for would be people who were active in the field, from 1956 through 1975 (by some reckonings).

But (and I've met, spoken to, got a sketch or signature from, walked past at a con, and or dined with some of these) there's Neal Adams, Sal Buscema, Ramona Fradon, Larry Lieber, Jim Steranko, who meet the definition.
