R.I.P., Dr John

Dr. John, the famous New Orleans blues musician, the night tripper, le grand zombie, has died. I'm honestly not sure what to write here that would do him justice.

Not that I'm too terribly familiar with his œuvre. I only have one of his albums, Gris-gris; he's one of those musicians you feel you should listen to more, but then you never get the opportunity to do so.

You may also know him from the movie Blues Brothers 2000, BTW, in which he sang Season of the Witch.

My thoughts are with his loved ones, his family and his friends.
