Rock and roll legend Fats Domino passed away on Tuesday at 89, and stars who woke up to the news are heartbroken.

“Was listening to Fats Domino recently, very sad to hear of his passing and so glad of the work he leaves behind,” singer-songwriter Hozier wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning.

“Rest in paradise to Fats Domino. He paved the way for so many. I remember listening to his music as a little boy,” said LL Cool J.

“RIP fats domino… you helped pave the way for new orleans piano players… see you on top of that blueberry hill in the sky,” tweeted Harry Connick, Jr.

From his first recording in 1949, Domino made his mark on the New Orleans music scene, and went on to inspire musicians everywhere.

His hit singles include “Ain’t That a Shame,” “Blueberry Hill” and “I’m Walkin.'” He released his debut album, “Carry on Rockin,” in 1955, but it was reissued as “Rock and Rollin’ with Fats Domino” in 1956.

Domino also appeared in two films released in 1956: “Shake, Rattle & Rock” and “The Girl Can’t Help It.”
