Domino, the amiable rock 'n' roll pioneer whose steady, pounding piano and easy baritone helped change popular music even as it honored the grand, good-humored tradition of the Crescent City, has died. He was 89. Mark Bone, chief investigator with the Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, coroner's office, said Domino died Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017. (AP Photo/Cheryl Gerber) ORG XMIT: NYDK207

The Saints paid tribute to one of New Orleans' favorite sons Sunday, sporting "FATS" decals on their helmets in honor of music legend Fats Domino, who died Tuesday.

Domino was born in New Orleans on February 26, 1928. His portly girth earned him the nickname “Fats.”

His enduring hits include “Ain’t That a Shame,” “Walking to New Orleans,” “Blueberry Hill," "I'm Walkin' " and "Blue Monday."

The tribute by the Saints was one of many since his death, as fans and fellow musicians celebrated his life and legacy.
