Fats Domino, who sang such hits as “Ain’t That A Shame” and “Blueberry Hill,” died Tuesday, the coroner’s office said. He was 89. At least in appearance, Domino was no Elvis Presley. He stood 5-feet-5 and weighed more than 200 pounds, with a wide, boyish smile and a haircut as flat as an album cover. But Domino sold more than 110 million records, and his 22 million-selling singles helped change popular music even as he honored the grand, good-humored tradition of the Crescent City. He was one of the first 10 honorees named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Rolling Stone Record Guide likened him to Benjamin Franklin, the beloved old man of a revolutionary movement.
