In the year since Hurricane Katrina hit the Big Easy, Aaron Neville has the answer: It sucks.
The storm forced Neville, along with thousands of others, to flee the city and he admits hell always be haunted by the disaster.
In his words, Its my life and my roots. Im always thinking about the people who were in the water and nobody cared. Its going to be hurting and haunting the rest of my life.
Neville, who suffers from asthma, was told by his doctor not to go back but he admits theres another reason why he may not ever return.
As he puts it, I have memories. Thats why I havent been back.
Instead, Neville now lives in Brentwood, Tennessee, and says hes comfortable there but its a different scene.
Nevilles latest project is a new CD, Bring It On Home: The Soul Classics, which features his take on classic soul standards and hits stores September 19.
