Remembering Fats Domino 1928 - 2017



Singer-songwriter Antoine "Fats" Domino, Jr., who died Tuesday at age 89, sold over 65 million records and recorded eleven Top 10 hits, including "Ain't That a Shame" (1955), "I'm in Love Again" (1956), "Blueberry Hill" (1956), "Blue Monday" (1956) and "I'm Walkin'" (1957). In 1986, he was one of the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and he also received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award that year.
