RIP Dr. John

2019-06-08 by manosg STAFF | 11 Comments
Legendary New Orleans Blues artist Dr. John, passed away Thursday morning at the age of 77, after suffering a heart attack.

Initially a session musician, he released his first solo album, Gris-Gris, in 1968. His music, which was initially characterized as voodoo-funk, blended elements of pop, jazz, boogie-woogie, rock and roll, and of course New Orleans blues. A six time Grammy winner, he released numerous classics and has been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. RIP Dr. John.

Damn! I actually make hip-hop and sampled Dr. John on one of my favorite tracks I did a couple years back. Listened to some of the rest of his stuff after finding the initial sample I wanted to use and really dug it. RIP man.
