    Saw him at the very first Bull Durham Blues Festival in 1988: https://indyweek.com/music/features/...connects-past/

    He's credited on the score of "Bull Durham" as well -- don't recall his music in the movie.

    Crap. Nobody lives forever, but crap. A virtuoso.

    R.I.P.

    Here is one of the highlights of one of the two greatest concert films ever:

    I saw Dr. John perform in a cafeteria at Jacksonville State U in Alabama in '73 or '74. Great show. He and the band were dressed in white with brightly colorized accessories. The opener for the show was the world-famous drummer Buddy Rich, unless I saw two shows there at different times. Buddy was stupendous. He had an ego that matched his talent.
    Man, if your Mom made you wear that color when you were a baby, and you're still wearing it, it's time to grow up!

    IMO, always underrated, Dr. John was one of the greatest musicians of his generation. His multi-instrumental talent was probably best illustrated on the ivories, where he was a master of second line rhythms and constant improv. It seemed like he never played a tune the same way twice and his hands were always playing differently.

    Much thanks, for some of the best music I ever saw or heard, Dr. John!

    Iko Iko. I also saw him in '88 in Durham, and several times since.
