Recording Academy Remembers Fats Domino
We pay tribute to the iconic Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient behind rock and roll classics such as "Blueberry Hill," "Ain't That A Shame" and "Walking To New Orleans."
On Oct. 24, 2017, the music community lost one of the original pioneers of rock and roll, Fats Domino. The New Orleans native masterminded hits throughout the '50s and '60s, including "Ain't That A Shame," "Blueberry Hill," "Blue Monday," "I'm Walkin'," and "Walking To New Orleans." In 1987 he was honored with the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his creative accomplishments. He has four recordings in the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame.
