New Orleans musician Dr. John dies at 77

While driving home yesterday evening, I was saddened to hear the news that legendary musician, Dr. John had passed. His style and talent went unsurpassed, he was truly a great artist.
Prior to a concert I was scheduled to photograph, about 12-13 years ago, I had met him very briefly backstage. He had a genuine, good natured personality, with an immense amount of creativity and musical skill.
Rest in peace Dr. John.
