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.
He helped rock n roll get rich. His songs will go down in history.
All the greats are leaving us little Richard is in bad shape, aterha franklin has cancer, Diana Ross is in the psycheward, and Marian Carey is losing her mind
Chaka khan is probaly back.in drugs man the greats are leaving
Whites probsly made more off fats then he did a shame chuck berry, ikw turner, and no diddley all had money problems before they died
Junie Morrison died broke his music been sample to death no royalties
Stop saying chuck berry had money problems, he was just a cheap SOB!
He was robbed of his publishing
And he sued!
He had issues greater than that, he could have made more money, but like I said he was a cheap SOB!
Good gracious, anon. The man is dead. Show some respect. Let sleeping dogs lie, for real.
No one asked for your two cents so fuck off.
RIP Fats. New Orleans will always love you.
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.
