LGBT People Pay Tribute to The Cranberries' Delores O'Riordan

The Irish band broke through in the ‘90s with “Linger” and then became the music of many young people. Although O'Riordan was straight, her music inspired LGBT people.

Fats Domino, Architect Of Rock 'N' Roll, Dead At 89
Fats Domino, one of the architects of rock 'n' roll, died Tuesday at his daughter's suburban New Orleans home. Haydee Ellis, a family friend, confirmed the news to NPR. Mark Bone, chief investigator for the Jefferson Parish coroner's office, tells NPR that Domino, who was 89, died of natural causes.
In the 1940s, Antoine Domino Jr. was working at a mattress factory in New Orleans and playing piano at night. Both his waistline and his fan base were expanding. That's when a bandleader began calling him "Fats." From there, it was a cakewalk to his first million-selling record — "The Fat Man." It was Domino's first release for Imperial Records, which signed him right off the bandstand.
