Al Copeland has died in Germany.

Having been elsewhere for much of Copeland’s place on the stage we call home, there’s not much I can say about the man other than the fact he founded Popeyes Chicken and some other interesting eateries. He lived a flambouyant life. He did good things with some of his money, and he seemed to create a stir everywhere in his life.

‘Tis a pity… Al Copeland was one of the characters of New Orleans, and he will be missed.
