Hey, isn’t that . . . ?: Little Richard

Little Richard in concert Saturday. (Josh Sisk for The Washington Post)

Little Richard rolling on into the Old Country Buffet at Fairfax’s Fair City Mall Saturday afternoon. The rock-and-roll pioneer — in the area for his Howard Theatre show that night — came in with a large suit-and-tie’d entourage, chatted for about 10 minutes with a 91-year-old fan about age and music and health; apologized for sitting in a wheelchair on account of his bad hip (at his concert, he was regally carried on and off stage). Also dined at the same down-home chain restaurant on Friday evening; told a manager he prefers to eat where the locals eat.
