Legendary New Orleans producer and songwriter Allen Toussaint lost the statue recognizing his 1998 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame when Hurricane Katrina destroyed his home last year. So he brightened up our Monday morning and stopped by the New York office of the Rock Hall (located in the same building as Rolling Stone) to pick up a replacement. After graciously acknowledging RS for our coverage of the plight of New Orleans (pat ourselves on the back much?), Toussaint urged all of the media types present not to let the story drift into the background. That applies to you too, readers!
