"Fats Domino, one of the most influential rock and roll performers of the 1950s and 60s, has died aged 89.
The American rock and roll artist was best known for his songs Ain't That A Shame and Blueberry Hill.
The New Orleans singer sold more than 65 million records, outselling every 1950s rock and roll act except Elvis Presley.
His million-selling debut single, The Fat Man, is credited by some as the first ever rock and roll record."

I got to see him ca. 1988 in Boston and he still had (reportedly) his original band. They were pretty old anyway. These old Rock and Roll legends are pretty scarce today. I hope Little Richard is taking his vitamins.
