FATS DOMINOFats Domino pins and signs lyrics from his songs "They Call Me the Fatman" and "Blue Monday". Autograph Lyrics signed: "Fats Domino", 1p, 8½x7. Lyrics from two songs written by Domino. First is titled by him: "They Call Me the Fatman". In full: "They call, they call me the Fatman/Cause I weigh two hundred pounds." Second song is titled by him: "Blue Monday". In full: "Blue Monday how I hate blue Monday,/Have to work like a slave all day/Here comes Tuesday ah hard Tuesday I'm so/Tired I've Got No Time to Play." Domino's first single, "The Fat Man" (1949), is one of the songs consistently singled out as a candidate for the first rock & roll record. The record made number two on the R&B charts and sold a million copies. "Blue Monday" (1957) was fifth on the Pop Singles chart. Domino and Dave Bartholomew co-wrote both songs. Hailing from jazz country, Antoine "Fats" Domino (1928-2017) began recording New Orleans style piano with the song "The Fat Man" in 1949. Nicknamed "Fats" when he was ten by bandleader Bill Diamond, the young musician became a rhythm and blues hit artist in 1952 with "Goin' Home." Three years later, Domino crossed over to the burgeoning new sound, rock 'n' roll. "Ain't That a Shame" (1955) led the succession of million-seller hits over the next five years. From 1955-1963, Domino had 35 Top 40 hits. These songs, many of which were co-written by Domino, included "I'm In Love Again", "Blueberry Hill", "Blue Monday", "I'm Walkin'", "Whole Lotta Loving" and "Walkin' to New Orleans". With 65 million record sales and 23 gold records to his credit, Fats outsold every Fifties rock 'n' roll pioneer except Elvis Presley. In 1980, Domino appeared at the Montreux Jazz Festival, and throughout that decade he continued to perform in clubs and rock 'n' roll revivals. Domino made news in 2005 when he was rescued from his flooded home in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city. Fine condition.
