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.



Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.maryport2if5.jpg

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.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

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.
There were three of us in the morgue so it was rather crowded

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

That sounds kind of strange. How could Fats Domino be rescued, but still missing? Wouldn’t he have contacted his family and friends or the media? Surely we would have heard reports of his whereabouts.

[ BTW, I think that Fats Domino deserves his own thread. ]

From the Beeb.

His daughter Keren Domino White told CNN she had seen her father being helped off a rooftop in a newspaper photograph taken on Monday.

But Ms White said she had not been able to contact her father since then.

The musician's agent Al Embry had earlier said that nobody had seen Domino since he told people he was planning to "ride out" the storm at his low-lying home.

Probably not the greatest plan I've ever heard.

Yes, but I may never play the 'cello again.

Fats "doesn't feel up" to 150 mile trip...

Just lazy, or something to keep an eye on?

He can't walk 150 miles. He would have a stroke or kneel down to a heart attack.

He is just another one of those old heavy set jazz men.

Real shame none were whiped out durning Hurricane Katrina. But we had none on the list so either way it doesn't matter to me.

I'd say lazy. If the man didn't move for Katrina, he's certainly not going to move for the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame. :pop:
