There is a good article from the NYT here - http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/24/arts/music/the-big-beat-celebrates-fats-domino-rocks-reclusive-giant.html?_r=0

You can watch the TV show here - http://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmasters/fats-domino-and-the-birth-of-rock-n-roll/6230/ but only if you have tricked your ISP into thinking you are in the USA

There is a clip here of a very old looking Fats at the premier of this doco in 2014 - http://www.nola.com/movies/index.ssf/2016/02/pbs_documentary_fats_domino_an.html

Finally, if you are interested in NO music in general , have a look at this great website - http://cosimocode.com/
regards

Fats is reclusive indeed.

Some friends of mine helped with a small bit of funding towards the excellent doco, which I am yet to see.

But I will in about a month.

I never got to see Fats perform in his home town, the closest I got was when he waived to us at Tips when I was their with local friends for Instruments a Coming, many moons ago, and he was a gracious VIP guest.

The cosimo code is great, and I always nod when I go past the family place
