Fats has left the stage, RIP!


Recommended Posts

Well at least he enjoyed life for 89 years unlike so many other of our favorite musicians who died much earlier, or before they may have fulfilled their potential. Fats was popular before most of us were listening or playing pop music but I think it's a tribute to him how many people covered and modernized his songs over the years.

He played NOLA style piano, but with a softer touch.


I can hear is influence in Dr.John and others who came after he made the scene.


R.I.P. and thanks for the tunes.


Long John Baldry also had much of Fats Dominoes influence in his sound, and that young keyboard genius Elton John was a major reason Baldry had that vibe
