Fats was a very, very interesting man. He lived rent free for many years at the Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville and often spent his evenings hanging out at a local music bar (if I remember correctly, I think it was actually called the Stockyards) which was owned by the same guy who ran Tree Publishing. I and some business associates of mine gave him a ride home one evening (he was just standing out by the street around 1 am) and I snapped at the opportunity to befriend him. After that, I met with him many times at the hotel and played 9 ball with him twice - needless to say, and even at his age, he wiped my pitiable butt. During one of those games, he pulled out his enormous, ancient wallet which contained dozens upon dozens of yellowing, faded, folded press clippings he had accumulated through the years which featured him and several of the people he knew back in the day. A absolutely fascinating, funny person and a living piece of Americana.
