Fats Domino: Rock and roll legend dies aged 89

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

"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.
An official from New Orleans coroner's office confirmed the death, which was earlier announced by Domino's daughter to a local television station."...........

Ahhhh, a legend is gone. Not my style of music but always admired the craftsmanship of those songs!

His style of piano playing still lives on in New Orleans, you can hear in the music of Dr. John, Jon Cleary and dozens of others.
