FATS WALLER BIOGRAPHY

Thomas "Fats" Waller was one of the greatest pianists of all time. He was born in New York on May 21, 1904. He qualifies for the IRS Corner due to the inclusion of several performances included in the soundtrack of David Lynch's cult film Eraserhead. An adept keyboardist, his delicate touch contradicted his physical girth. He also pioneered the use of the Hammond and Pipe Organ (as evidenced by the Eraserhead material).
