HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A Hattiesburg record store honored Fats Domino Wednesday by playing his music, and only his music, all day. 

T-Bone's Records and Cafe' featured an "All Fats, All Day" tribute on its in-store sound system. 

The Rock and Roll legend died Tuesday in Harvey, Louisiana, near New Orleans, at the age of 89.      

"He really was one of the earliest pioneers of Rock and Roll that brought, in an early way, both black and white audiences together for a mutual good time," said Harry Crumpler, owner of T-Bone's Records and Cafe.' "And before 1955, he had five different gold records and each sold over a million copies, not just anybody could do that."

Fats Domino was born Antoine Dominique Domino, Jr. in 1928 and he spent most of his life in New Orleans.
