Such a Night.
A legend New Orleans will remember forever. Thanks for the great music. RIP

I've been a fan of Dr. John since I heard the song... Such a Night. I loved his presence on stage. I'm 72 and had to paint him at his piano in Dr. John's style with his skull and accessories. The waterfall over the piano just appeared and I went it as he looks at the night sky, My style of Such a Night. RIP. A legend around the world.
