Today 1928 Fats Domino was born

Antoine Dominique "Fats" Domino was born 1928_February_26. He is a classic R&B and rock and roll pianist and singer-songwriter and (according to Joel Whitburn's Billboard books) was the best selling R&B artist of the 1950s.

When Hurricane Katrina was approaching New Orleans in August 2005 Fats didn't wanted to be evacuted. Someone thought Fats was dead, and spray-painted a message on his home, "RIP Fats. You will be missed", which was shown in news photos. The rumour was spread widely.
Gladly Fats was saved by a coast guard helicopter. And so he is celebrating today his 80th birtday. Happy birthday mr 'fat man'.

Fats didn't went to heaven yet so here's Fats Domino - Whiskey heaven.

Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.
