Dr. John in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Dr. John will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tonight, along with Darlene Love, Tom Waits, Neil Diamond and Alice Cooper.
Leon Russell will receive the Award for Recording Excellence.
The Hall of Fame website says “Dr. John belongs to a prestigious lineage of New Orleans keyboard greats that includes such names as Professor Longhair, Huey “Piano” Smith and Fats Domino. His name has become synonymous with the city in which he was born. Dr. John’s music is stamped with the rhythms and traditions of the Crescent City, and he has spent a career that now spans more than half a century championing its music.”


  1. Finally something I agree with and like about your blog!

  2. They play New Orleans style music at Popeye's Fried Chicken, and some of what they play Is Dr. John, and it really gives the place a New Orleans sound. Good stuff, and the chicken, too.

  3. G.R, thanks.
    Anon - wonders never cease. Keep checking in, we may agree again sometime.

  4. Dr. John and Leon Russell!!! You can't get much better than that. THanks for the music Jim.
