Do the kids today even know who Dr. John was? Dr John dies aged 77: Ringo Starr leads tributes to Grammy-winning New Orleans singer.

The New Orleans-born musician, whose real name was Malcolm John Rebennack and who was a six-time Grammy winner, died on Thursday, a message posted to his official Twitter account said.

Right Place, Wrong Time

This song was on a TV show I was watching recently, where Dr John actually made a cameo appearance, though he only played a couple of seconds of the song. I seem to remember when this song was always on the radio.

The song is “Right Place, Wrong Time” from the 1973 album In the Right Place by Malcolm John Rebennack, better known as Dr. John.

The show? NCIS: New Orleans, because that is Dr John’s hometown.
