While he would become very popular later in his life, Fats Domino had a simple beginning. He was raised by parents who loved music. He had seven siblings, many of which loved to play music too. Fats Domino spent his childhood chopping wood, boxing, and collecting scrap metal. When Domino was ten years old, his family got a piano. After that, every Saturday was a party at his house. There was music, dancing, and friends. Fats Domino fell in love with the piano and in doing so, set himself on a musical path that would shape the rest of his life. Step into this book to see how Fats Domino went from playing for his neighbors in his backyard to playing for all of New Orleans!

From its roots in gospel, the blues, and R&B to its remarkable power to transcend color lines, early rock music has significantly shaped American culture. The lives and music of five rock and roll icons are presented here against the turbulent backdrop of racial segregation. Slavery, the Jim Crow era, and the civil rights movement are discussed candidly throughout, painting a clear picture of race relations at the time. The series’ focus extends beyond its powerful theme of rock’s ability to unite people by exploring the music business of the 1950s and ’60s. The Chitlin Circuit, innovations like the jukebox, DJ Alan Freed, and music recording studios such as Chess Records receive recognition. Each artist’s unique sound, varied styles, and trademarks are explored while discussing their influences and role as inspirations to future generations. An excellent series that depicts music’s sterling ability to spark and influence social change.
