Statement from Antoine "Fats" Domino
Elvis Presley often referred to Fats Domino as “the real king of rock ’n’ roll,” but this octogenarian musical royal has led a relatively sedate life, especially compared with high-flying contemporaries like Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard. Perhaps that’s why this New Orleans piano legend’s impact is often overlooked.
Davell Crawford, who appears in a scene in Sunday’s (Oct. 28, 2012) episode of “Treme” with Fats Domino, is a living link to New Orleans’ musical legacy.
