Jerry Lee Lewis Honors His Friend, Fats Domino

"It was a very upsetting day to hear about my dear friend Fats. We spent many good times together, from rockin' on the road to spending time in each other's homes for a good downhome country dinner. We're both piano players from Louisiana. I love him, and now I miss him." - Jerry Lee Lewis

Fats Domino was one of the first inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986. Of the original 13 pioneers, only three remain; Don Everly of The Everly Brothers, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis. Rest in Peace, Fats.

 

About Fats Domino: (taken directly from Wikipedia)

Antoine Dominique Domino Jr. (February 26, 1928 – October 24, 2017) was an American pianist and singer-songwriter of Louisiana Creole descent. He had 35 records in the U.S. Billboard Top 40, and five of his pre-1955 records sold more than a million copies, being certified gold.

From 1955-60, he had eleven top 10 hits and his record sales were reportedly surpassed only by Elvis Presley.

During his career, Domino sold over 65 million records. His musical style was based on traditional rhythm and blues, accompanied by saxophones, bass, piano, electric guitar, and drums.

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
