Episode 213: Fats Domino – Rest In Power




November 6, 2017



On October 24, 2017,  Antoine “Fats” Domino passed away due to natural causes at the age of 89. In today’s episode, Jim and Patrick reflect on the rock-n-roll pioneer, his chart toppers and the musicians that idolized him; all of the aspects that made Fats a true icon in the music industry.

FUN FACT: It’s no surprise that Fats inspired so many rock-n-roll musicians that we know and love today. John Lennon is no exception. He covered a Fats Domino song on his 1975 ‘covers’ album Rock ‘n’ Roll with the track “Ain’t That a Shame.”
