On this day in 1928, musical legend Fats Domino was born. He is said to be the first to sell over a million copies of a rock and roll record. He accomplished this platinum-selling feat in 1949 with his record, "The Fat Man."
At one point it was rumored that Domino had died in the Hurrican Katrina tragedy. However, although he lost his office and home, the music legend survived the historic disaster.
