Obituary

Dr. John was a legendary New Orleans singer and musician who was known for his lively voodoo themed stage shows where he took on the persona of “the Night Tripper.” Dr. John (born Malcolm Rebennack) combined blues, jazz, rock, pop, and boogie woogie to create his own unique musical style. The flamboyant New Orleans native was an important ambassador for the music of his hometown. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, introduced by singer John Legend. His best known song is the top twenty hit, “Right Place, Wrong Time,” in 1973.” The guitarist-pianist-singer was an in demand session player who recorded with many artists including Frank Zappa and Van Morrison. He also toured with Ringo Starr’s All Star Band.
