Out On Blue Six: Fats Domino, RIP

News of another sad loss has come through today; the iconic Fats Domino has passed away at the age of 89. The man who outsold everyone in rock and roll in the 1950s, barring Elvis (who referred to Fat as 'The Real King of Rock and Roll') was a truly influential figure in music, a pioneer who inspired generations and seold 65 millions records, starting with the first, his debut single 'The Fat Man', which is often credited as the first ever rock and roll record.


Here's three tracks from Fats, the first one being a particular favourite of mine




RIP

  1. That's a shame. One of the last surviving rock n roll greats. Jerry Lee must be glad he made that deal with the devil now...
