RIP Dr. John

RIP Dr. John

On a cold Palo Alto January 10 night at Sophie's in 1976 when James Booker came up from New Orleans to replace Nicky Hopkins in the Jerry Garcia Band, JGB played Right Place, Wrong Time, which was Dr John's biggest hit (billboard #9, US charts)

On an April 7, 1972 bootleg from Syracuse New York, Dr John and band played a wicked Wang Dang Doodle as its penultimate tune. The Dead were in London.

He also played with John Kahn and Jerry at the beacon on April 21, 1982
