The Fat Man

New album due out next week celebrating Fats Domino. The great New Orleans Artist was feared dead in the wake of Katrina. But NO!!! The 79 year old Fats lives!
Now there's a tribute album and who isn't on it? No one. Check it out below.

The album will raise money to restore Fats's home which was pretty much destroyed in the flood. This promises to rival the Jerry Lee Lewis album "Last Man Standing". There's a link to the Jerry Lee album on my website http://www.suckerbeagle.com/

If you don't know the story collection *The Fat Man in History* by Peter Carey, you're missing out. It has nothing to do with Fats Domino, but it does include a story entitled "Last Days of a Famous Mime." It's a gem.
