No Thrill on Blueberry Hill Today, FATS DOMINO Is Gone
Rock and roll, rhythm & blues pioneer, innovator and legend ANTOINE "FATS" DOMINO has reportedly died at the age of 89. He scored his first hit, "The Fat Man" in 1949, and racked up so many Top Ten smashes such as "Blueberry Hill," "Be My Guest," "I'm Walkin'," "Walkin' to New Orleans," "I Want to Walk You Home," "Valley of Tears," "Ain't that a Shame," and "Whole Lotta Love" - all for Imperial Records. He lost a goodly amount of his memorabilia and gold records because of Hurricane Katrina. Below, see a vintage live performance of his signature song, "Blueberry Hill" on The Ed Sullivan Show.
