It really is a shame...

It really is a shame...
Our favorite band got one of their biggest hits by covering a classic. 

The co-author and hit-maker behind that classic has now died. 

He once told Rolling Stone that Cheap Trick’s cover was his favorite. 

So why no CT statement or even a measly tweet in praise of and wishing peaceful rest to the great Antoine “Fats” Domino? 

I’m hoping there’s a good reason I’m missing. Or maybe my Google machine is broken.

There was a RIP tweet from Rick yesterday.

Thanks, I’m glad to know it, sorry to have missed it. Here’s Rick’s message:

>>cheaptrickrick#FatsDomino #RIP "To Fats Domino" "Ain't It A Shame" For Selling One Million Records" This Gold Record from 1955 was given to #CheapTrick in 1979 in #SaltLakeCity by his manager Andy Chudd, because Fats loved our version from #LiveAtBudokan so much. I've had it since that night after we drew straws and I won. #cheaptrick #cheaptrickrick #gold <<

Really good story. Unfortunately most of us forget that Cheap Trick covered this song. They made it they own.  RIP.
