New Orleans lost another legend today. Lionel Batiste. He entertained till the day he died. We last saw him at French Quarter Fest this past April.

EXCELLENT photo montage in honor of "Unc" here.
Noladefender has a perfect tribute here.
From "My New Orleans dot com", another sendoff post, where you can buy a poster of Uncle Lionel and support his funeral expenses.
