R.I.P. Antoine "Fats" Domino


Village Elder
“I never thought about no music,” Domino told Coleman. “It’s just something I guess the Lord gave me. A lot of people went to a conservatory school of music and say they can’t play the simple things I play. I don’t know if I changed music or not, but that’s how I like it and that’s what I stuck with.”

Fats Domino, Early Rock 'n' Roller with a Boogie-Woogie Piano, is dead at 89. He died on 24 Oct 2017 at his home in Harvey, La., across the Mississippi River from New Orleans. Rest in Peace, Big Man.
