Fats to perform at Jazz Festival

Yep, I'm convinced as well now. On his lazy-bed rather than on his death-bed.

Dylan looks surprisingly old in the photo, though admittedly I haven't seen a recent picture of him in quite sometime.

Anyhow, as if you needed more conformation, I heard on the radio the other day that Fats will be playing a concert in San Diego as well. Looks like he's got a full schedule for himself.

For a guy who is about 65 - I disagree with your comment of him looking old,

Bob Dylan should have many years left within him. <_<

Like other ancient singers who seem anything but retired like Frankie Laine should be kept out of Deathlists spotlight for the time being.

The above from the linked article. If there was any justice, or a fair contract at the right time, he wouldn't have needed the bung from the musicians' charity to repair his home.

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

Him or BB King next year. But I just saw King on the Rock N Roll hall of fame the other night, he was playing with Eric Clapton who doesn't look like Eric Clapton anymore. You would think he is a wealthy business man who owns a bank or something.

It was emotional. There were a lot of people crying," said Quint Davis, of the city's Jazz and Heritage Festival.


From the story linked above. Notably the one thing nobody says is that it was any good. A lot of 'great to see him back' not much of 'he's still got it.'

For my honesty I doubt you would find me tuning in on Fats Domino but 'His return' meant more then his actual 'performance' Your points are very clear but you don't want to take anything out of context. But obviously on a come back the last thing anyone will say is 'Please let your blues career just drop dead'

From the article:

"Domino's house, studio and office are currently under reconstruction"

That is a clear example of 'tempting fate'

It aint over till Fats stops singing.

So, Herbert and Dino received now their first comments for 2008. Fats Domino is now one of three people left, who received their last comment in 2007, together with Dead Throat and Jake Lamorte...

Is Fats still in town? If so, and if he chooses to stay, he could be in for another batering if Hurricane Gustav has anything to say about it.

Personally I think its unlikely that he would choose to stay and ride out the storm, but you never know...

Antoine (a.k.a. Fats) who as recently as February 26 turned 82 doesn't seem to be making any waves healthwiise, although still broken up by the woeful passing of his old pal Bobby Charles, who was a few years younger than our sugar man.

His health seems decent, having survived Katrina and the waves :sicktherm: I'm sincerely hoping we can get another 29 years from him.
