38. Fats Domino

Recommended Posts

 

Saxophonist Herb Hardesty, heard on most of Fats' recordings, has died aged 91. http://www.wwltv.com/news/local/herb-hardesty-best-known-as-fats-dominos-saxophonist-dies-at-91/362631252

 

Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_Hardesty

 

Ain't that a shame...

Just an FYI I almost never click on these 2016Names links and I can't be alone in that. IOW 99% of what's posted here is banter--not even health updates--and I couldn't care less what anyone thinks about any of these folks on DL, so I mark as read and move on.

Please don't bury an obit here, especially when the person is of repute.

That is all.

You are becoming a tiresome troll.

He always says "I'm ready", while deadpoolers wonder if he'll be going home tomorrow...

He doesn't seem too Italian to me.

His eyes don't look the greatest though. Plus, he's not one I'd expect to make it to the century mark.

Still sporting nifty trainers - so likely getting himself around okay. No sign of a carefully parked wheelchair in that shot and he is twisting his body, not caught in the act of falling off the piano stool, right?

I think he looks great for 89.

With Chuck Berry's passing, is Fats now the oldest soul in Rock and Roll?

 

I can't think of anybody else older unless you count Dave Bartholomew (born 1918, 98 years old) but I don't know if his stuff can be considered 100% rock. (he's in the RnR HoF tho)

 

 

Ironically, Bartholomew is a long time collaborator and friend of Domino (he composed "Ain't That a Shame" and "Blue Monday", among others.)

Here you can see the two artists reunited a couple years ago. From the looks of it, Dave will probably live to be 110. Can't say the same about Fats tho.
