I would have guessed otherwise, too. He certainly had a nice long life.

“Fats Domino’s impact upon Rock and Roll music cannot be overstated. For over 50 years, his songs have been mainstays of the genre, garnering hits not only for himself, but for a plethora of well-known musicians- from Pat Boone to Ricky Nelson, to Cheap Trick. Beatle John Lennon always credited Domino’s “Ain’t That A Shame” as the first song he ever learned to play on guitar. The first rock and roll song that Beatle George Harrison ever heard was Fats’ “I’m In Love Again.” Paul McCartney regularly did impressions of Fats and “I’m Walkin’” in the early days of the Beatles. The Beatles freely admitted that their song “Birthday” from the “Double-White” album, was nothing more than a song cobbled together out of old Fats Domino riffs. McCartney’s “Oh Darlin’,” from Abbey Road is an unabashed Fats tribute. Both Lennon and McCartney recorded Fats Domino songs in their post-Beatles solo careers.”
