Fats Domino, one of the most influential rock and roll performers of the 1950s and 60s, has died aged 89.


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.

Fats Domino - whose real name was Antoine Domino Jr - was one of the first rhythm and blues artists to gain popularity with a white audience and his music was most prolific in the 1950s.
Domino had a string of number ones and more than 30 top 40 hits.
His music is also credited as a key influence on artists during the 1960s and 70s.

Just heard. Blueberry Hill was the song that I thought of when I heard he had passed. I didn`t know a lot of his songs but he was a good entertainer.
