Domino is known for his hits ‘Ain’t That a Shame’, ‘Blueberry Hill’ and ‘I’m Walkin’. He scored 11 top 10 hits in the US between 1955 and 1960 and sold more records than any other ’50s-era artist other than Elvis.

The musician’s real name was Antoine Domino Jr. An early collaborator, Billy Diamond, gave him his nickname of ‘Fats’, explaining: “I call him ‘Fats’ because if he keeps eating, he’s going to be just as big!”.
