It was one of the few bright notes coming out of the Hell hole that is New Orleans, but I was very relived last night when I found that Fats Domino had been found and was alive and well. The horror that is New Orleans is unimaginable, but the thought that Katrina had claimed Fats made it just that much worse.

But has anyone heard whether Irma Thomas has been found yet?


I was very sad to hear about the death of R.L. Burnside though. I remember two grea shows of his at teh old Santa Fe Music Hall. I also recall that about six years ago Burnside had to cancell his headlining gig at the Thirsty Ear Festival due to health problems. Corey Harris said a prayer for him on stage at the festival that year. I'm sure more will be said this weekend.
