some consider "Fat Man" to be the first Rock and Roll record..
a legend passes..
Now you guys are talking about my time! As I've said before, Allen Freed coined the term, R&R, before that the same music was considered Rhythm & Blues; not that pap which comes out of Detroit these days. I'm glad Fats confirmed that for me.
I once tried to cover 'Blueberry Hill' but realized it just didn't work with my voice and lack of talent. LOL.
One of my early music heroes...RIP, Fatman.
Oh, and thanks for the video, Veda!
