Now Don’t That Top All…

Music legend Fats Domino has died, Dear Reader. He was 89

*/rolls eyes… Yes, you can get fat from eating too much pizza, Clicky… and, yes, Fats Domino was a great musician, butt…*

*That is certainly phat, Clicky… /shakes head… Butt it’s still not Fats Domino… /sigh… Now go find me a video of him in action…*

*Yeah… /sniff… Thank you! At last…*

Fats Domino 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’s music has been credited as a key influence on artists during the 1960s and 70s. Elvis Presley introduced Fats at one of his Las Vegas concerts by saying “this gentleman was a huge influence on me when I started out”.

Paul McCartney reportedly wrote the Beatles song Lady Madonna in emulation of Domino’s style.

*Cool! You got him singing it…*

He was given his nickname by bandleader Bill Diamond for whom he was playing piano in honky-tonks as a teenager. He said the youngster’s technique reminded him of two other great piano players, Fats Waller and Fats Pichon.

This afternoon Red Frank over on MEROVEE posted me a scene from ‘Dr Strangelove’…

*Knot that bit, Clicky, butt… Gno Clear…*

In the mid-1940s, he joined trumpeter Dave Bartholomew’s band, and the two co-wrote Domino’s first hit The Fat Man. Suddenly, the New Orleans sound became popular nationwide.

A number of things in the last 24 hours have led me to consider writing a post about Peter Sellers

*No Clicky, nothing to do with Kubrick…*

I have posted about Peter Sellers before, at Sync Miss For Him

*Well, I hope Dear Reader takes a look and a loiter, Clicky… It’s a bit like being handed somebody’s holiday snaps, though – it’s hard to enthuse unless you’re really interested or were actually there*

But yesterday evening, Red Frank posted ‘Love Hurts‘ at MEROVEE and included the Pink Pan-ther…

Meanwhile I was having a conversation with Cade about books and poetry and ‘overt lurking‘…

In Internet culture, a lurker is typically a member of an online community or PLN who observes, but does not actively participate.
