Rest In Peace Fats Domino

The world lost one of the biggest stars of fifties' rock and roll music on October 24, 2017 when the legendary  Fats Domino passed away. According to the coroner, he died of natural causes at his home in Harvey, Louisiana at the age of 89. Harvey is a suburb of his beloved New Orleans. 

Second only to Elvis Presley, Domino had more than three dozen top 40 hits during the forties and fifties. His biggest hit was in 1956 with his version of  "Blueberry Hill".

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times in 1985, Mr. Domino said, "I was lucky enough to write songs that carry a good beat and tell a real story that people could feel was their story too - something that old people or the kids could both enjoy."
