The legendary songwriter, producer, musician, arranger and A&R man hooked up with Fats Domino and their collaborations sent shock waves from New Orleans, forever changing the soundscape of American music. Bartholomew wrote classics including “Ain’t That a Shame,” “I’m Walkin’” “Blue Monday,” “Walkin’ to New Orleans” “I Hear You Knocking,” “Let the Good Times Roll” “Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” “One Night (With You),” and thousands more.
