Thanks very much for the post, Lisa. †Did she say anymore regarding his condition other than "safe"?

Memphis rocker evacuated from New Orleans home


By Jon Sparks
September 5, 2005

Memphian Alex Chilton, 54, the famed rock singer and guitarist who lives in New Orleans is alive and well.

Ron Easley, a friend and fellow musician who has recorded a number of albums with him, said Chilton called early Monday morning from a hotel in a city Easley would not name. He said Chilton was evacuated by helicopter from his home Sunday and later flown out of the area.

Chilton, who hadnít been heard from since shortly after Hurricane Katrina struck, told Easley he stayed in his home the entire time and water had gotten up to his porch. Chilton said he had food and water but was most concerned during the week about roving gangs.

Not to be totally ungracious, but does Chilton have any plans to tour?

Alex made it-Barry Cowsill didn't.  All teeny-bopper bubblegum musicians should have survived Katrina, not just the one.

If I remember what I read correctly, Barry lost his wife because of his drinking, and he was one day away from going into rehab somewhere in California. †He was living in NOLA, some speculate, so that his sister Susan could sort of watch him. He left some phone messages on Susan's mobile phone, but the contents have never been made public. Apparently Barry had a reputation for being suicidal. †I'm not a big roots music fan, but I liked Barry Cowsill; he was a ture "Colorful Character." †As much as I don't like scratchy-voiced rootsy music, his version of it was a lot of fun.

Anyway, here's the world's greatest backup singer, Susan Broussard, with her brother's urn:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoowGvW8C6I
