Mac Rebennack, better known as Dr. John, died Thursday at 77. The pianist and singer brought the sound of New Orleans to the world and is being remembered by many as a genius and a gentleman.
Dr. John came to our studios in 2010 to play tunes from his album "Tribal" and sat down for an interview with KNKX's (then KPLU's) Kevin Kniestedt. Kevin joined Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick to talk about what made Dr. John so special.
