    Great listening – total agreement from my generation, Fats’ generation
    glad the Phoenix Preacher notes his passing

  2. Michael says:


    While my peers were listening to Led Zeppelin or the other music of the day, I was listening to the men I noted above.

    I loved Fats Domino…

  3. Jeff Sheckstein says:

    Those who claim to be knowledgeable and love rock n roll that have little familiarity with Fats and the whole New Orleans sound are akin to Christians who know little about and don’t study the OT.

    Rest in peace with your Saviour Fat Man.

    Jeff…I’ll amen all that…

  5. John 20:29 says:

    Well… to be truthful, I loved listening to Fats, but I found Elvis boring and creepy

  6. Captain Kevin says:

    I like all those guys. Unlike Em, I was a big Elvis fan. Saw him live in Vegas when I was 9 years old…what an experience!!

  7. Jeff Sheckstein says:


    Could we also pass the hat for Sister Rosetta Tharp?

  8. Michael says:


    You just got bonus points.

    Ask any of those guys from Memphis or Macon who they were influenced by and her name is always one of the first…

  9. John 20:29 says:

    Captain K, I was about 15 when I saw the Mills Bros. at a Las Vegas dinner club and became a life long fan of that group… “Across the alley from the Alamo, a pinto pony and a Navajo sang a sort of an Indian hidi-ho to the people passing by….” and there was a magic summer evening at the Greek Theater with my future husband listening to Harry Belafonte sing calypso music. ..
    I peeled off when Elvis got “all shook up” … I was too serious, I guess
    (How did a 9 year old get in to see a Las Vegas rock and roll show, btw?)

    My wife and I saw Elvis in 1970 or 71 when he began his Las Vegas comeback. He opened the new International Hotel and we we there the 2nd week. That was a big score for a couple if 21 yr old college students.

    She was really something, I understand.

  12. Duane Arnold says:


    Thank you, simply thank you… If I could do what he did with his left hand on the piano, I’d die a happy man….

  13. Jeff Sheckstein says:

    Bob1 and all out there who love gospel

  14. descended says:

    I hope God lets Fats read that. Touching.

  15. Michael says:

    Duane, thank you.
    Descended, that was very kind of you and choked me up.

    Part of the attraction of heaven is that I know they built a juke joint out back…there has to be if He prepared a place for me…

  16. descended says:

    I’m sure he has something superior – “a [chord] of three ain’t easily busted”
