The Great Fats Domino

Antoine “Fats” Domino  was truly a pioneer and some even credit him as the first rock and roller – But no matter what his early genre he was a pathfinder and a true founder – charting in the very early 1950’s and continuing well into the 1960’s – and performing well beyond that.  Fats is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well he should be – inducted in 1986.  Fats’ story is narrated in an excellent in-depth fashion by Rick Coleman in his biography “Blue Monday”, first published in 2006 (see my PopPublications page).

The Fats Domino Timeline

1946

Antoine forms his first group in New Orleans with Buddy Hagans (sax), Rupert Robertson (guitar), and Victor Leonard (drums)

1947

Antoine meets band leader Dave Bartholomew at Al’s Starlight Inn in New Orleans setting up a long musical partnership.  That same year musician Bill Diamond calls Antoine “Fats” during a performance introduction – a moniker which Antoine was not at first pleased with but one which stuck for his entire career.  Domino would go on to play with Bill Diamond’s band in the late 1940’s.  In June of 1947 Bartholomew is performing with his band at Robey’s Bronze Peacock Club in Houston where he meets Imperial Records owner Lew Chudd.  Bartholomew is offered a contract but the deal isn’t sealed at the meeting – but would later steer the mutual careers of Domino and Bartholomew.  Sax player Lee Allen and wild drummer Earl Palmer are both band members with Dave.

1949

Antoine puts together another band in order to work himself into a night club regular spot.  Other group members included Hiram Armstrong and Charles Burbank both on sax.  They would devise a raucous stage act at the Hideaway in New Orleans featuring Antoine’s pounding boogie piano surrounded by the wild tempo provided by the others.  Many other local musicians would sit in with Domino including his brother Freddie, neighbor Sonny Jones (sax) and drummer Dave Oxley who would become a regular band member.  Later in the year Domino would perform for Lew Chudd of Imperial Records and subsequently sign a record contract.

1950

Domino continues to perform around New Orleans with Billy Diamonds’ band and tours with Dave Bartholomew.  Domino decides to form his own group in addition to playing with Bartholomew.  Group members include drummer Willie Barbarin, Buddy Hagans on sax, bass player Lawrence Guyton and Charles Burbank on alto sax.

Imperial 5058 – “The Fat Man” b/w “Detroit City Blues” – Charted R&B February 18th, 1950 – #2
(This song was initially titled “Junker’s Blues” but was rewritten to accommodate the record market – When recorded – Fats was accompanied by most members of Bartholomew’s band – The song is often touted as the beginning of rock and roll – at least on vinyl – It isn’t a full fledged rock and roll band accompanying Fats (like the Comets) – but it was a great beginning)

Fats puts together a band which he would cite as his best ever with Buddy Hagans from his previous group, Billy Diamond on bass who had headed up his own group with Fats playing piano, and warm up singer John Jones.  The group was rounded out by newcomers  drummer Cornelius Coleman who succeeded a very long line of drummers, Wendell Duconge on sax and finally the teenage guitar player Walter Charles Nelson.
