He was 77.A family statement released by his publicist says Dr. John, who was born Mac Rebennack, died early Thursday of a heart attack.His spooky “Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya” slithered onto the pop-dominated market in 1968, startling listeners with its sinister implications of other-worldly magic.In a career marked by drug addiction, he later had a Top 10 hit with “Right Place, Wrong Time.” He collaborated with numerous top-tier rockers, won multiple Grammy awards and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.Kevin McGill, The Associated Presslast_img
