Dr. John (born Malcolm John Rebennack on 20 November 1941; died 6 June 2019) was an American singer-songwriter, pianist and guitarist whose music combined blues, boogie woogie and rock and roll. The winner of six Grammy awards, Rebennack was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by singer John Legend on Monday, March 14, 2011. He was variously known as Mac Rebennack, Dr. John Creaux, Dr. John, the Night Tripper.

The late Dr. John, who passed away earlier this month at age 77, once wrote, "Guys like Dave Bartholomew come along once in a lifetime. Dave gave breaks to so many fantastic artists, from Fats Domino and Smiley Lewis to Johnny Fuller, Pee Wee Crayton, and Snooks Eaglin, and great musicians like Pappa Yellow "Tuts" Washington, Allen Toussaint, Huey Smith, James Booker, and Edward Franks. The list of musicians who played in his band and who he opened doors for is endless." - Recording Academy / GRAMMYs

Altar at the foot of MTO's Dr. John mural at Dryades & Toledano, which has become a gathering place for New Orleans to honor its own Mac Rebennack.
French mural artist MTO ( Graffiti / Street-art ) on the mural at Dryades & Toledano becoming a gathering place for New Orleans to honor Dr. John:
"I love the idea that the mural is used as a memorial location to celebrate him, and can't be more happy that it becomes part of his gigantic legacy."
