FATS DOMINO was overjoyed after he received reproductions of 20 gold records he lost when Hurricane Katrina ravaged his home in 2005. The Ain't That A Shame legend, who chose to weather the storm rather than flee Louisiana two years ago, was presented with the replicas at a French Quarter nightclub in New Orleans, Louisiana on Monday (13Aug07). Famed musicians Irma Thomas, Charmaine Neville and Deacon John were on hand to see the stunned 79-year-old star receive the gold plated records. A spokesperson for Capitol/EMI, the recording label that helped with the project, says, "Everything was replicated, down to the record labels and the framing."
