Dr. John - Right Place Wrong Time (Official Audio)

You're listening to the official audio for Dr. John - "Right Place Wrong Time" from the album 'In The Right Place'. Just as Friday had begun to appear on the horizon, we here at Rhino HQ received word of the death of a man whose music served as the soundtrack to many a weekend – not to mention a whole lot of Fat Tuesdays – over the course of the 60+ years of his career: his name was Malcolm John Rebennack Jr., but to his fans, he was known simply as… Dr. John.

Malcolm John Rebennack (November 20, 1941 – June 6, 2019), better known by his stage name Dr. John, was an American singer and songwriter. His music combined blues, pop, jazz, boogie-woogie and rock and roll.

Active as a session musician from the late 1950s until his death, he gained a following in the late 1960s after the release of his album Gris-Gris and his appearance at the Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive Music. He typically performed a lively, theatrical stage show inspired by medicine shows, Mardi Gras costumes and voodoo ceremonies. Rebennack recorded 31 studio albums and 9 live albums, as well as contributing to thousands of other musicians' recordings. In 1973 he achieved a top-10 hit single with "Right Place, Wrong Time".

The winner of six Grammy Awards, Rebennack was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by singer John Legend in March 2011. In May 2013, Rebennack received an honorary doctorate of fine arts from Tulane University.

On June 6, 2019, Dr. John died of a heart attack. His family announced through his publicist that he died at break of day, and "He created a unique blend of music which carried his home town, New Orleans, at its heart, as it was always in his heart."
