    The Doctor was a New Orleans legend and an immense talent. His body of work from "Gris Gris" to his 2012 Album "Locked Down" (a modern masterpiece) was outstanding. What a soulful and funky gent. I was fortunate to see him play with the Neville Brothers. RIP Mac...

    I remember his song Right Place Wrong Time from the early 70's.

    I saw his obituary for the first time yesterday but it had been a month.

    Yeha he did a month ago, but somehow nobody got around to posting it, and he sang during the end credits for 101 Dalmatians and The Jungle Book, which is just about 20 years apart.

    He also was responsible for the name of the Bonnaroo festival (from his 1974 album), as well as the title Brain Salad Surgery (from Right Place, Wrong Time) for Emerson Lake & Palmer.

    Quite the character...we shall not see his like again.
