    RIP Fats Domino

    I had no idea he was still around.

    Ain't that a shame.

    I thought he died in like 1982.

    Re: RIP Fats Domino

    I really enjoy his late 60’s covers of a few Beatle Songs. RIP
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    “A lot of people seem to think I started this business,” Presley told Jet magazine in 1957. “But rock ’n’ roll was here a long time before I came along. Nobody can sing that music like colored people. Let’s face it: I can’t sing it like Fats Domino can. I know that.”

    Re: RIP Fats Domino

    I was just checking to make sure this wasn't one of ChipR's obituaries from 2002.

    In all sincerity, RIP. He didn't have the chops or sound to adjust and survive in rock, but his early work is a lot of fun.

    He was one of the true pioneers of rock. I was looking at his discography and I didn't realize just how many top 40 hits he had.

    I had been under the assumption Fats Domino had been dead for at least 30 years.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    Next thing you'll try to tell me is that Chubby Checker is still alive.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    If/when the Big Bopper dies, I'm going to be crushed.

    No worries. I can guarantee you that you'll never read a story about the Big Bopper dying of old age.

    The plane crash never happened. It was a conspiracy by the CIA and Portugal
