Remembering Fats Domino, 1928–2017
He was recording rock & roll in 1949 and influenced the Beatles – not that he'd ever brag about it

Fats Domino was never a typical rock & roll star. On the road, he packed a hot plate and packages of rice and beans so he could cook his favorite meals in hotels. He stayed married to the same woman for more than 60 years. And he downplayed rock & roll's wild side. After riots broke out at two of his concerts in 1956, he told a reporter, "I never would use dirty lyrics. And I don't use body movements either. I just play the piano, or I sing and clap my hands."

 A contemporary of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis, Domino was among the first acts inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and was reportedly only second to Presley in record sales thanks to a titanic string of 11 top 10 hits between 1955 and 1960
