Fats is alive and well in New Orleans. 8/29/2010


But as I understand it Fats is no longer living in his own house down in "The Lower 9th Ward". That place looks fixed-up but that whole area was the worst hit part 5 years ago.

I was looking at a whole load of pictures on Google Earth only the other day - still a real mess. So sad that these people seem locked into living a number of metres below sea level. My idea would be to re-house all these folks and turn this poorest of areas into a marina and give them a free boat and mooring rights too.
That's just too Grizzly...

I live a number of metres (one, to be precise) below sea level. It doesn't bother me much, although I'm aware that my home might flood. Your idea won't work well in the Netherlands, since those parts that lie below sea level (about a third of its area) happen to be the most densely populated and economically must valuable. We rather pay for engineering solutions.

Of course global warming and sea level rise may force us to adopt your solution. When we run out of Lebensraum, we can always invade Germany.

Hein

Antoine who is plodding towards his 85th birthday next February has seemingly disappeared again, likely starting plans for a tour of the 7 continents.

Some Fats-related characters who are getting up there:

Engineer/studio owner Cosimo Matassa, 87.
Producer Dave Bartholomew, 92.
Fellow Louisiana R&B singer Lloyd 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy' Price, 80.

Fats was in the TV series Treme last year, so hopefully not boogie-woogieing off just yet.

why, you little...

Quite.

Although, I am slightly suspicious of any self confessed 'n**a' who appears to lack the basic knowledge of the number of letters in even the contracted form of their chosen sobriquet.

Forgive me if your nickname is 'Nana' and I have misunderstood.

Well nobody and I mean "nobody" is Fats Domino. No matter what your blues are in New Orleans or anywhere.
