Grammy-winning musician-composer-producer Malcolm John Rebennack Jr, better known as Dr. John, mixed blues, jazz, rock, and faux voodoo into a rich musical gumbo, until his passing on June 6, 2019 at age 77.

In this CBS “Sunday Morning” profile originally broadcast on August 20, 2006, correspondent Russ Mitchell rode with R&B, rock, blues, funk and boogie-woogie star Dr. John through New Orleans. A great view of New Orleans history – both musical and disaster-related as Dr. John stopped by to chat with one of the godfathers of the city’s music scene, Allen Toussaint, and Cosimo Matassa, owner of the legendary New Orleans recording studio where Dr. John started playing as a teenager.

Dr. John died of a heart attack on June 6, 2019 at the break of day, according to his family.
