Fatman on their mind
Gone, but far from forgotten, Irvin Fatman Weekes was on the minds of the people of New Orleans and especially at Londy’s Bar.
Proprietor Andrew “Londy” Springer said he had known Weekes for more than the 15 years he had been operating his bar and he was in mourning over the loss of a friend.
This sentiment was echoed throughout the St Michael district with people reminiscing about the dub artiste, who lost his life after being caught in the crossfire of a shootout there in the wee hours of Monday.
Noel Rock took things a step further. He was spotted walking the streets of New Orleans with a picture of Weekes with “We Love You” written across the top. He was gathering signatures from pedestrians and motorists alike with a view of having it framed and placing it in Londy’s Bar to make sure the slain entertainer would always be in the minds of whoever visited.
