Fats Domino’s Death

Fats Domino, died at the age of 89 (February 26, 1928 to October 24, 2017). He was the voice and piano behind hits like “Blueberry Hill” and “Ain’t That a Shame,”. A contemporary of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis, Domino was among the first acts inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and was reportedly only second to Presley in record sales thanks to a titanic string of 11 top 10 hits between 1955 and 1960, which also included “I’m Walkin,’” “Blue Monday” and “Walking to New Orleans,”. He will be missed by the music world.

    I remember sitting in a place called Hamburger Heaven at the corner of Oxmoor and Central and listening to Ain’t That A Shame. It was a different time and the music was so exciting and so varied.
    RIP Fats.
