Alex Chilton Alive & Well | Katrina Updates

“Memphian Alex Chilton, 54, the famed rock singer and guitarist who lives in New Orleans is alive and well.

Ron Easley, a friend and fellow musician who has recorded a number of albums with him, said Chilton called early Monday morning from a hotel in a city Easley would not name. He said Chilton was evacuated by helicopter from his home Sunday and later flown out of the area.

Chilton, who hadn’t been heard from since shortly after Hurricane Katrina struck, told Easley he stayed in his home the entire time and water had gotten up to his porch. Chilton said he had food and water but was most concerned during the week about roving gangs.” [commercial appeal] (thx Jen)
