What are your feelings about president Trump?
I assured my niece I would not talk dirty openly anymore, so I'd pretend I did not hear the question.
Are you superstitious?
Sure enough! I use to eat something white before an important meeting. Clearly not today.
When your are not on tour, which is your main hobby?
I think that collecting old TV antennas rests my mind.
One of your hits, "Ain't That a Shame", is a hymn of love. Does it also have a second meaning?
Definitely! It really is about my unconfessed love for root beer.
What’s your biggest defect?
I'm too cool and in general I work too hard.
If you didn't grow up to become known as the singer Fats Domino, what do you think you would have done?
I would have gone to a record company and sang John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt until they gave me a job.
Do you ever Google yourself?
Not so often. Say every other day or so. But lately Google often asks "Did you mean Fats Demino", who turns out to be a former plastic surgeon from Seattle. That's quite dispiriting, but not as much embarassing as learning that according to Bing my name is similar to a horrible curse in Bulgarian.
Where do you go when you die?
According to many books, the departed are not that mobile. They normally tend to stay where you put them.
