In the days following Hurricane Katrina, spurious rumors spread about Antoine "Fats" Domino's fate. He was, in fact, rescued from the rooftop of his 9th Ward home. His Steinway baby grand wasn't so fortunate. It has been preserved — sort of. It will sit in the entrance of the Presbytere, where it was installed today, and be the opening piece in the Louisiana State Museum exhibit "Living With Hurricanes: Katrina & Beyond," which is slated to open Oct. 26.
