Sad news, I loved this guy. One of the few musical enthusiasms I shared with my dad, I pinched his copy of the Such A Night Live In London album twenty years ago and still play it to this day. I saw him in Bristol a few years ago and he was frail then, but still did a great show. It’s fair to say he had a colourful life and I’ll miss him
The swamps fall silent
Love Dr John. New Orleans holds a special place in my heart and he was the embodiment of the spirit of the city. RIP.
Oh terrible news. Always loved that version of ‘such a night’ on the last waltz.
Awww man just seen this
Think I’ve been muddling Dr John up with Dr Hook. Sorry Dr John.
Not a real doctor
Weirdly had Jump Sturdy in my head last night. Must have been some cosmic swamp ripples. What a great, really made some magic records and was still growling and grooving til the end
Love those two albums with the meters, as well as the ‘classics’
Plus my fave disney tune…
This is glorious
