Gatemouth GATE PASSES
Not even lung cancer could get him.
Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown died on Sunday at his brother's home in Orange,
Texas. Gate had suffered from lung cancer for over a year, complicated by
heart disease, but had made many appearances, including one at OffBeat's
Best of the Beat Awards in January 2005. Mr. Brown's house in Slidell was
destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

What Will Happen To New Orleans Music?
As I write this, I am wondering if Katrina will create a permanent diaspora
of New Orleans musicians. Or will they return to the city they gave them
inspiration? Already I've heard from so many people who are in Lafayette,
various places in Tennessee (especially Nashville), Baton Rouge, and Austin.
I hate to say this, but unless we are committed to getting our city
back--and that means everyone in the music community--there will be no more
music in New Orleans.
Austin seems to be licking its chops at the prospect of sucking up so much
musical talent and so many music businesses. Basin Street Records has
already landed there. How many others?
For all those people who love New Orleans and her music, come back to the
city as soon as you can, please! There have been numerous (too many to
count) benefits to help New Orleans residents. Some have been earmarked for
the city's musicians.
But no one has come forward to administer these funds for local musicians.
And what about all the music businesses that have been displaced because of
Katrina? There are no FEMA funds to help these people.
Let us know what you think--or
4af9d0e121> wish--will happen.
