Dr. John and Eric Clapton: St. James Infirmary

The above clip perhaps is a bit more Clapton than Dr. John, but it’s great.

Malcolm John “Mac” Rebennack, Jr. — Dr. John — seems like he’s been around forever. Actually, he was born in 1940. He is a great piano player and showman and an all-around interesting “care-actor,” as he pronounces it.

Here is the teaser for his latest offering, which The New York Times described at the end of March. His pure piano playing brilliance is on display in Swanee River Boogie. Two of his big hits are Right Place, Wrong Time and Such a Night.

Here are his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bio and discography.
