Fats Domino

February 26, 1928, New Orleans, LA

Clean living keeps me in shape. Righteous thoughts are my secret. And New Orleans home cooking. ~ Fats Domino

The most popular exponent of the classic New Orleans R&B sound, Fats Domino sold more records than any other black rock & roll star of the 1950s. His relaxed, lolling boogie-woogie piano style and easygoing, warm vocals anchored a long series of national hits from the mid-'50s to the early '60s. Through it all, his basic approach rarely changed. ~ Allmusic: Fats Domino ~ retrieved June 9, 2013 © Allmusic
