Sad news indeed.This is my favourite Mac Rebennac pre-dr. John track (even got it as ring tone!): https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=mac+rebennac+the+point&&view=detail&mid=26D2F9752990203DFA6D26D2F9752990203DFA6D&&FORM=VRDGAR

RIP Mac Rebennac, aka dr. John, aka the Night Tripper.

What a cool fella he was, I met him once in departures at Heathrow. We chatted for 30 minutes about music and New Orleans artists before I had to leave to catch my flight, absolutely no ego about him.

Lucky you! He must have been a fascinating human being.
