About this product
- DescriptionWhile many think of Elvis Presley as rock 'n' roll's driving force, the truth is that Fats Domi, whose records have sold more than 100 million copies, was the first to put it on the map with such hits as Ain't That a Shame and Blueberry Hill. In Blue Monday, acclaimed R&B scholar Rick Coleman draws on a multitude of new interviews with Fats Domi and many other early musical legends to create a definitive biography of t just an extraordinary man but also a unique time and place: New Orleans at the birth of rock 'n' roll. Coleman's groundbreaking research makes for an immense cultural biography, and is the first to convey the full scope of Fats Domi's impact on the popular music of the twentieth century.
- Author BiographyRick Coleman's work has appeared in Offbeat, Goldmine, Billboard, and Rolling Stone, and in liner notes for the likes of Fats Domino and Little Richard. He lives outside New Orleans.
