Fats Domino in Austin Texas – Blue Monday

First of all, like his hero Louis Armstrong a generation earlier, Fats is synonymous with New Orleans. Not to mention the early days of rock-and-roll. Who doesn’t love the infectious lyrics and floating melodies of “Blueberry Hill,” “Ain’t That A Shame” or “Blue Monday?” Music was practically a birthright for Antoine Domino, Jr., one of nine kids from a poor family. He never made it past 4th grade, but he was already playing boogie-woogie piano.
