Music Biz Mourns the Loss of Rock And Roll Pioneer Fats Domino

Music Business Association President James Donio issued the following statement​ upon the death of Fats Domino:

“Music Biz is saddened by the passing of Fats Domino, a true pioneer of rock and roll. Domino’s hits, including ‘Blueberry Hill’ and ‘Ain’t It a Shame,’ helped form the foundation of the modern music business, selling over 110 million records in the early days of rock and roll. In fact, his contributions to music were so valuable that the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry has preserved ‘Blueberry Hill’ as a historic recording, and Domino himself was one of the first 10 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The music business would not be the same without him, and we send our condolences to all his family and friends.”
