A profile of Fats Domino, a pivotal player in the birth of rock 'n' roll. During the 1950s and early '60s, he scored 63 pop hits and 59 R&B hits, including such classics as "Ain't That a Shame," "Blueberry Hill" and "I'm Walkin'." In fact, his sales were second only to Elvis Presley's at the time. Born in 1928, he left school after the fourth grade to focus on music; and found success when "The Fat Man"—considered one of the first rock 'n' roll records—hit No. 1 on the R&B charts in early 1950.
