RIP Doctor John

RIP

 

Interesting to see that both Leon Redbone and Dr John died within a week of each other.  IMHO they were both very different, but still cut from the same cloth.

It’s been a rough week in New Orleans, first Leah Chase and now Dr. John. RIP to a couple of icons

Funny when I read he was only 77.  He seemed like he was around since the beginning of time making amazing music.  R.I.P Brother.

 

As one who’s pushin’ 61, God bless you for saying he was ONLY 77!!!

 

And I agree, by today’s yardstick, that’s a realtively young age to go.  But a heart attack will take much younger folks too.

 

I guess the last show he did in BuffTown was maybe 10 years ago.  It was called Thursday In The Square (T.IT.S.) - later changed to Thursday AT the Square, for obvious reasons.

 

Mac had the unique ability to use his voice and piano skills to mix rock, pop, jazz, stride, boogie, et al into his own unique artistry.

 

And his unique voice is so recognizable, even if you don’t think you know him, on so many movie soundtracks...this one from ‘When Sarah Met Larry’, or something like that...

He hit the top 40 with lyrics and song content too garbled to be hit by the censors...

 

RIP

Saw him a Jazz Alley-Seattle, maybe 89-90.  Fantastic show.  The skull with the incense burning was a nice touch!  RIP Doctor!
