One thought on “Sunday Toona: RIP Dr. John”
Probably the coolest dude ever. On BBC radio on the day his death was announced, he was heard, in an old interview, telling the world how he’d got into playing the piano – “I was a guitar player … until one night on stage a guy began pistol-whipping one of my singers, so I went in to help … The gun went off and shot through my (little?) finger. The doctors managed to sew it back on, but it was never the same afterwards, so I took up piano…”
Well, something like that.
We won’t see his like again.
