Dr. John Passes
On Thursday, June 6, one of the leading purveyors of New Orleans Gris-Gris music, Dr. John, passed away of a heart attack. He was 77-years old.
Born Malcom John Rebennack, Jr. – known as Mac – Dr. John began his career as a New Orleans studio musician shortly after dropping out of high school. But it wasn’t until after moving to Los Angeles in the 1960s after a heroin bust in Texas that he developed the Dr. John “Night Tripper” persona, that would propel him to worldwide fame. After spending a few years working in LA’s studios, including work with Canned Heat, Frank Zappa’s Mothers Of Invention and Sonny & Cher, Rebennack used studio left from one of those completed sessions to record his first album as Dr. John, Gris-Gris. Three more albums followed before the 1973 release of In The Right Place, which featured performances from Allen Toussaint and The Meters, and contained his first big hits, “Such A Night” and “Right Place, Wrong Time.” Dr. John continued to record and perform throughout the rest of his life.
