    Fats Domino dead

    Antoine “Fats” Domino, the New Orleans artist who brought us hits such as “Ain’t That a Shame,” “Blueberry Hill” and “Blue Monday” passed away on Tuesday at the age of 89.

    A medical examiner said Fats died of natural causes.

    In the 1950s and early ’60s, Fats helped establish NOLA as the center of rock ‘n’ roll thanks to his piano-based tunes that landed at the top of the charts.

    He had more than thirty Top 40 hits, including 23 gold singles.

    RIP!

    2. HOLY SHIT, Fats Domino was still alive?? You wouldn’t even know it, considering how little people talk about him. Man, dats a shame, one of our legends just sitting there, completely ignored by the world. How come BET never reached out to this man and did a interview with him, a retrospective on his life or sum’n. But nah, it take VH1 or NBC to celebrate one of our own, when we should be the ones doing it.
