Dr. John (legal name Malcolm John Rebennack) was born in 1940 in New Orleans. His phenomenal piano style is inimitable: always varied and inventive, very complex yet catchy and groovy. He won the Blues Music Award in 2011 for Best Pianist, but he didn’t appear only as solo pianist, but also as composer, producer, accompanist (and as music pedagogue, as attested to on his website). He did not restrict himself to the native blues of his home town, but ventured into various other genres such as Rock, R&B, and Creole Soul Music. Through his extravagant performances, he became the icon of psychedelic rock. The list of musicians he collaborated with is a long one. Here are just a few names: Frank Zappa, The Rolling Stones, Phil Spector, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Canned Heat, Sonny and Cher, and later also Charles Brown and Eric Clapton. His performances in the films The Last Waltz (Martin Scorsese) and Blues Brothers 2000 (John Landis) are also legendary. In 2007, Dr. John was welcomed into the Blues Hall of Fame and in 2011 into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
