When most of my friends were listening to Elvis and the Everly Brothers, it was Fats Domino and Little Richard for me. Another awful loss.

Perceptions I guess. I didn't know he was still alive. I hadn't heard about him for so long. So when I heard about his death I thought wow 89, and I was pleased he'd had all those years beyond what I had thought he'd had. I thought he'd been gone for the last fifteen or twenty years.

I liked and still do like him, I want to celebrate his life, not mourn over his death.

Fats Domino was one of the early rock n' roll legends who had songs which most people over 30 can easily recognize. The classic Blueberry Hill was Richie Cunningham's song on Happy Days. I can still hear in my mind Fat's sing I'm Walking to New Orleans, Blueberry Hill and My Blue Heaven.

If there is a Heaven, then it's got some great musicians.

RIP Fat's, and thanks for the music.

We didn't know it at the time, but Fats brought that New Orleans piano style to kids all over the country, including white kids like me. I didn't figure out until much later why it sounded so good.

I think you're reading something into my post which is not there Ike.

If you are perturbed enough when you encountered my expression of feelings such that you are asking me a loaded question as you did above, suggesting that I feel other persons feelings are misguided, then perhaps you are not separating your stuff from mine.

Reexamine what I said. If I were to state or imply other persons feelings are misguided, that would be me making a value judgment of them. But I didn't make a value judgment with regard to anyone's feelings but my own. I spoke of my perceptions and feelings, none other. I spoke of my choosing to celebrating his life, not mourning over his death, in the context of my feelings, none others.

For you to load a question with that "misguided" part, about a value judgement which I did not make, you're making a value judgment of me.

You're projecting your stuff onto me in a loaded question. :|

Why would I need to do that, Sam? It's not like your superior way of looking at pretty much everything on earth is one of the great mysteries of the universe. And do me a favor will ya? Give your orders to your offspring...I already have a mother.
