My favorite memory of Fats goes all the way back to December of 1958 when the "B" side of his then latest 45 "Coquette" debuted on the KFWB Fabulous Forty Survey and I rushed out to buy it. Taking a break from my childhood piano lessons and attempting to learn the likes of "Swans On The Lake", I would put "Coquette" on my Victrola and try to learn that instead (well, when my parents weren't listening in!) Early the next year, "Whole Lotta Lovin'", the "A" side took over and became the much bigger hit. RIP Antoine, you had a long, deeply productive life.
