Because I Love Him and Because He Is a Damn National Treasure

Dr. John and friend. The one, the only.
New Orleans' native son and one hell of a fine musician.

And also because he was right when he reminded us that money and greed is the root of all evil. Goddamn straight. If you've got it, give it, man!

There was a radio show on WDET when I was younger that would play Dr. John along with all kinds of other music, bluegrass, zydeco, you name it.

If you say he is a national treasure, then he is!!

Big Mark,
What a great radio station that must have been. I have almost all of Dr. John's CDs. I just adore him.
