Sad to report that Dr. John has passed, joining Leon Redbone for a gig at the pearly gates. The world has just become a bit less funky and cool, Mac Rebbenack was New Orleans. We will not see his like again anytime soon. I count myself fortunate that I was able to see him tickle the ivories live many years ago at a small club. He was in town to play a big show and just happened to stop in a joint called Jazz Alley and did an impromptu set of half a dozen tunes and left. The forty or fifty of us in the club were just blown away.

Saw him live twice, including at the New Orleans House of Blues, which was very cool. RIP

Never really listened to him aside from knowing he was a legend; he was awesome on Treme. RIP

Speaking of which, anywhere I should start with him?

Start with Gris-Gris and follow the voodoo straight to hell.  My great regret is that Dr. John and Mr. Quintron never teamed up to record anything, it would have been epic New Orleans.

Thanx, I went ahead and snagged Gris-Gris. 

You know, this is yet another example of that morbid old adage "they always go in threes"...

Jeff Austin, one of the founders and mandolin player for Yonder Mountain String Band passed away . It's a tough one, he was from the little mountain town here in Colorado that I lived in for awhile.

Time Machine RIP

Balin died late last year.

Still sucks, though.
