It might see off Fats Domino if he's still 'Walkin' to New Orleans.'

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

By the looks of things he'll be 'Wading to New Orleans'
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

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.

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?
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

He obviously wasn't on blueberry hill when the waters came in
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

At least two of the songs listed here would seem relevant..

No confirmation of this as of yet, and I hope he's ok, but Fats Domino has been reported missing in the Hurricane Katrina aftermath.

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.
