The first ambassador of
New Orleans rock 'n' roll, Domino collected 23 gold singles and sold 65
records, more than any other '50s-era rocker except Elvis Presley.
His boogie-woogie piano style complemented his easygoing rhythm and blues vocals on "The Fat Man,"
"Blueberry Hill," "Blue Monday," "Ain't That a Shame" and "I'm Walkin'."
His last big hit, "Walking to New Orleans," came in 1960.
