This is from a 1956 episode of the Ed Sullivan Show:
Rock and roll legend Fats Domino passed away yesterday in Harvey, Louisiana. He was 89 years old. Beginning his career in 1947, Fats Domino performed for 60 years straight before retiring in 2007. He leaves behind 5 gold records, 37 Top 40 singles, and 35 records in the Billboard Top 40.
Once, when a reporter called Elvis “the king,” Elvis pointed at Fats Domino and said, “No, the real king of rock and roll is right over there.”
RIP, Fats Domino.
Thank you for the music.
