'Heal the Hood' Takes Up Katrina Aid
We remember Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, the singer and guitarist who died Saturday in his hometown of Orange, Texas. He had gone there to escape Hurricane Katrina. He was 81. Brown, who had been battling lung cancer and heart disease, was in ill health for the past year, said Rick Cady, his booking agent. Cady said the musician was with his family at his brother's house when he died. Brown's home in Slidell, La., a bedroom community of New Orleans, was destroyed by Katrina, Cady said.
