Post subject: RIP Fats Domino Reply with quote

Fats Domino died aged 89.

With his emphasis on the off beat he was one of the forefathers of what became ska.

Check out his track 'Be My Guest'.

He really was a pioneer and one of the all time greats. I've been a fan for as long as I can remember.
Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard are the only two Rock & Roll legends left now.

In Horace's autobiography I seem to remember him saying the first time he met Jerry it was at a party and Jerry was sat at a piano playing Fats Domino songs
