Mac Rebennack {Dr. John, Doctor John The Night Tripper} wasn't just a club act. He also worked as a session musician in the 1960's.

One talented guy. Enjoyed his work a number of times.

One of my favorite artists ever. Saw him at the Hollywood Bowl a few years ago, and (though a security guy) he signed my copy of his autobiography. I'll miss him and his unique music.

Check out this amazing version of Such A Night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO53Xu6 ... e=youtu.be

I saw him at "Toronto Pop" in June, 1969 which also included a new band nobody had ever heard of at that time called "Alice Cooper." Alice Cooper wasn't even listed on the ads for the festival. I didn't realize that Dr. John's act was more than just a shtick. At the time I thought he was just more vaudeville.

Dr, John in sessions with Johnny Winter, 1984:

Some signature Dr. J keyboard work at about 11 minutes, and at 13 mins, everyone will recognize his sound.
Then, "Such A Night....If I don't do it, Somebody else will." RIP
