Another Bitter Irony?

I haven't been paying attention to the music publications I usually read this week. There's too much going on. But I just went to Pitchfork, only to learn that Big Star leader Alex Chilton, whose home is near the French Quarter, has apparently been missing since Monday. In the face of so much horror, one person's plight may seem insignificant. And there are plenty of people with fewer resources to prioritize over someone who presumably would have had the means to make his way to safety. All that said, though, it would be a bitter irony for the Nicolini-Bertsch household if something bad had happened to him in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. At least the formerly missing Fats Domino has turned up safe and sound.
