Dr. John > Rammstein. Hands Down.

So technically this doesn’t qualify as classic rock, but it’s old so I’m writing about it. Dr. John is a musician who started in New Orleans in the 50’s. Born Mac Rebennack, he took the stage name Dr. John from a famous early 1800’s voodoo practitioner of the same name. I’d describe his style as a mix of barrelhouse piano, funk and R&B; all with a distinct New Orleans flavor. His earlier stuff also had a sort of psychedelic tinge to it. Check out his 1st album, “Gris-Gris”. If you’ve ever heard Paul Simon’s album “Graceland”, “Gris-Gris” has the same African influence, but with a lot of “Timothy Leary visits N’awlins” thrown in. Here’s Dr. John in another one of those strange old music videos:

Confusion.

Okay, I forgot to mention that once a week we will be time traveling, taking LSD hits, and wearing “groovy threads.” Resident geriatric, Uncle Reg will be talking about music from his heyday. Pretty sure Mondays are reserved for the old man’s blabbering. So go back a couple of posts, and read about Eric Clapton being an unoriginal heroin addict.
