    I maybe wrong, but it is highly doubtful.

    He had a long life and a great career. Pride of brotherhood to Lousisianians and New Orleanians. R.I.P. Antoine Dominique Domino Jr.

    I saw him perform in 1974. He never once looked at the piano, kept his face to the audience the entire time. A consummate performer, like so many of his New Orleans brethren.

    Sad to hear this! I wish I’d ever had the opportunity to see him but, it never happened.

    R.I.P. One of the all-timers and IMO quite underrated by many.
