In reply to: . 's message, "He's one of 2 musicians thought to have died due to Hurricane Katrina. The other: Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown (died shortly after evacuatng to Texas)" on Thursday, August 29, 04:35:21pm

Brown had been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. He was already at death's door. He wasn't an evacuee because he was staying with family in Orange, Texas, as he was receiving cancer treatments in Houston at the time. While it is true that his home in Louisiana was destroyed in the hurricane, he was already well out of harm's way when it struck--and he died a good ten days after Katrina had ended.
