Fats Domino decided to ride out the storm...his house in the 9th ward in New Orleans is underwater and he hasn't been heard from since Monday afternoon. Lookin' grim.

It's a pity we did not include him on this year's deathlist. :lol:

As I understand it, the situation in Nu Awlins is rather confused, so don't get your hopes up yet.

 

BTW: welcome to DeathList, where the living need a life.

:lol: What a great motto! Do you think the admin team will go for it?

Iain, you could have the good grace to actually wait until he's officially declared dead, before posting his name on the near misses thread. This story has already been posted on the Katrina thread

 

OOOooooo!!!! Uncanny eh?

From what little I know about him (other than his music), he's been in poor health since the late 1990's...enough that he's almost completely stopped making public appearances. I don't know what those health factors are though. Another factor is that the 9th ward in New Orleans is a pretty poor area, so I'm wondering if, between health and finances, he had a realistic chance and the resources to get out of there.

The thought of Fats Domino dying partly due to poverty is genuinely sad. The man was a true star of his era. Hope he's still hangin' in there.

Well, Fats has been found alive and in good condition, all things considered.

 

As far as parts of the US resembling a 3rd world country...oh yeah, definitely. Near total anarchy and thug rule. I think we started working towards become a 3rd world country when a little less than half of us (and I'm not one of them, either time) elected Cowboy Dubya as president.

The BBC a say Fats Domino was rescued, but is still missing.

My guess is that he's on Blueberry Hill. It's always a good idea to head for high ground when there's flooding.

Fats is not, nor was, missing; he was "Swimming to New Orleans."

 

To Hades with you youngsters who don't get it!
