Rickie Lee Jones’ tribute to Dr John:
Michael Tisserand,, the biographer of Krazy Kat’s creator, also got it so right:
The great Jon Cleary said many wonderful things in his post about Dr. John, but this one really got me:
I was standing next to Earl Palmer and Mac several years ago at Earl King’s funeral and I said something banal along the lines of ‘we lost a good one’ and Mac shook his head and said we ain’t lost him, he’s still here.
I’m glad he said that.
