    Fats Domino Dies at 89

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Fats Domino, one of the most influential rock and roll performers of the 1950s and 60s, has died aged 89.
    The American rock and roll artist was best known for his songs Ain't That A Shame and Blueberry Hill.
    The New Orleans singer sold more than 65 million records, outselling every 1950s rock and roll act except Elvis Presley.
    His million-selling debut single, The Fat Man, is credited by some as the first ever rock and roll record.
    An official from New Orleans coroner's office confirmed the death, which was earlier announced by Domino's daughter to a local television station.

    This was one of the most popular entertainers ever. He never changed his style, and was emulated by the best of them-including The King, Elvis Presley. I saw him perform in 1985 and he was just wonderful. He was in a show with Jerry Lee Lewis. Mr. Domino said his first song in his concerts was done in memory of someone very special to him-Elvis Presley. That song was Blueberry Hill. I thought that was so nice of him. Rest in Peace, Mr Domino. Thank you for your years of entertainment.

    I always remember Fats finding his thrill on Blueberry Hill. An old favorite. RIP
