Rock legend Fats Domino has been named the honorary grand marshal of a pre-Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans, Louisiana. It takes place March 3, but there is a caveat. He won't attend.
Domino's eldest son, Antoine Domino III, will attend the Krewe of Orpheus fete in his father's stead and on his behalf, riding on a float.
Domino, 85, was presented with a medallion at his New Orleans home in late December. He was chuffed about the honor but was firm that he would not ride on a float. Alrighty then...
Cheap Trick, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and The Party Crashers are also set to perform as part of Mardi Gras festivities.
