He grew up in the 1950s New Orleans, grooving to Little Richard and Fats Domino. At sixteen he was a journeyman rocker, a record producer, a junkie. From recording studio to back alley to whore house to juke joint, he saw every corner of the wide-open city, living one step ahead of the law -- until the law caught up with him, and he landed in the penitentiary, with no time to play and hard time to pay. Years later, he mixed all his New Orleans memories into a salty musical gumbo, added a little voodoo spice, and crowned himself Dr. John the Night Tripper -- a psychedelic Pied Piper whose crackling voice and eye-opening lyrics made him one of rock's eccentric visionaries.
