Rock 'n' roll legend Fats Domino was on stage last Saturday for the first time since Hurricane Katrina hit his hometown of New Orleans. The 79-year-old sat at a piano to play a medley of his hits at Tipitina's nightclub.

New Orleans Times-Picayune music writer Keith Spera talks with John Ysdstie about the performer's stage fright, and his successful Tipitina's show.
