Fats Domino: Rock and roll legend dies aged 89
« on: October 25, 2017, 12:45:25 PM »

Another of my early on music heroes has passed...

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-41753839


I will remember him most for his 'version' of "I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill"...

a case of him taking a song that had been around a decade or so and one that had been done by various 'freat artists and then just plain doing it better...

he put his heart and 'soul' into it and he had a lot more soul than most of the singers I knew at the time!

Elvis actually did the song a few years later but Elvis even realized he didn't 'measure up' to Fats on this one...

In my opinion this is the only song there is to commemorate his life however anyone that wants to post there favorite I would be more than glad to listen to ;) ;) ;)

Had a good run at 89.  Hope I live that long.  I'm sure there are those out there that hope I don't.

I hope I live that long too as long as I'm still somewhat healthy.

But when the time comes I want to go 'quick'...

I've always said I wanted to be shot by a jealous young husband and that sounds better all the time...

just hope he's a better 'aim' than he is a husband ;) ;) ;)
