Rock and Roll HOF Icon Dead At 100


Fats Domino is still one of my favorite artists – one of Fats’ closest friends and working partners (co-writer and producer) Dave Bartholomew died Sunday at a hospital in the New Orleans area. He was 100 years old.

Digging through my tape archives I recall rescuing a:60 commercial for Schlitz beer from a trash can in 1975. I haven’s seen it posted on any social media, and I don’t know if Dave had a hand in producing it, but it a great representation of the classic sound we love so much. I call it 60 seconds of happiness – we can always use more of that…
