RIP Dr. John (1941-2019)

Dr. John was a living embodiment of a vast collection of American music traditions and sort of became a genre all to himself. It’s truly a surprise that he was really just one man, as he lived a life that was grand, colorful and as theatrical as any Mardi Gras parade.

Please join me in remembering and celebrating the good doctor with some of my favorite performances:

With Professor Longhair, The Meters and Earl King, 1974:


With Johnny Winter, 1984


VPRO PikNik, 1974


With Jerry Garcia and John Kahn, 1982


With Etta James, 1987


At the Mar Y Sol Festival, 1972


Syracuse, 1972


Beat Club, 1970
