Fats Waller was a talented musician, songwriter and comedian. Watching his clips have always brought me happiness (as well as playing his songs) and he always looked like he was having a great time, no matter what he was involved in. Sadly, he died at 39 from pneumonia as it would have been great to see what else he could have accomplished in his life. If you’d like to read more, his Wikipedia page is a quick read. I’ve tossed a few clips of his from YouTube below.
