Or should we call him Doctor Richard!?! Although he didn't know it at the time, Little Richard most likely saved his own life. Last week, he apparently suffered a heart attack when he felt pain in his right arm and was coughing. He took a baby aspirin and had the AC turned up to make it as cold as ice. And that's the reason he's still alive at the age of 80. Little Richard we wish you good health for years to come because you've got lots more rockin' and rollin' to do!
