Fats Domino: Live in London

Peter Silverton, Sounds, 1 April 1978

FATS DOMINO is and always has been the most unlikely looking bona fide Fifties rock and roller you can imagine. Where Elvis, Eddie and Gene looked like they'd cut your throat as soon as look at your face, Fats would look more at home running a restaurant for gluttons. Maybe that's why he's survived while they went to the wall in one way or another.
