The 2013 Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend at The Orleans featured music legend headliner Little Richard, vintage automobiles, burlesque stars and pin-up girl contests, and contributing photographer Scott Harrison was onsite for a photo gallery of Little Richard on Saturday night, while videographer Richard Corey captured the pin-up contest and Little Richard in a video posted on YouTube.
Corey’s video includes 2011 Playboy Playmate of the Year and “Pin Up” at the Stratosphere headliner Claire Sinclair as a judge, the 12 contestants of the Miss Viva Las Vegas Pin-Up Contest and the winner from Australia and Little Richard singing “Good Golly, Miss Molly.”
According to Corey, Little Richard talked about breaking his hip a few years ago. Because of his age (80), doctors said that he can’t survive an operation, so he no longer walks. He told the crowd how lucky he is to still be alive and able to sing. He performed for about an hour, played all his hits and after each song talked to the crowd about his life and band members.
