NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The year was 1986. 

Shortly after a documentary aired on PBS highlighting the legend's life, Fats Domino joined Billy Joel on dimly lit stage to accept his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

Joel tells a story about how when he took piano lessons he reached out to his father for feedback. He played Mozart, Chopin, and didn't get any reaction from his father. 

He then said he played "Ain't That A Shame" on piano and his father came down the stairs and hit him and knocked him off the piano bench. 

"He heard me," Joel said. 

Joel said he knew from then on that Fats Domino made the piano a rock and roll instrument.
