OffBeat Magazine: Fats Domino, The Quintessential New Orleanian
Fats Domino passed last October, but he remains an animate force in New Orleans life through his music. Domino’s spirit is not just the sound of Mardi Gras, it’s what New Orleans feels like 24/7/365.

Any attempt to sum up the life and outsized presence of Antoine "Fats" Domino, Jr. in New Orleans is folly. Simply stated, neither would have been the same without the other. Both are eternal joys. The life Fats lived here - red beans simmering, music radiating from humble architecture more human than the towers that define other cities - is palpable in Terrance Osborne’s robust portrait of The Fat Man (title of the first rock and roll record to sell 1 million copies, cowritten with producer Dave Bartholomew) in the kingdom he ruled with grace and notes.
