    RIP Doc. I can't say I was a follower of his stuff but "Right Place, Wrong Time" prob'ly pops into my head more than any song I've ever heard. Of course, we used to hear that song a lot, it stayed popular for a long time. I remember when that song came out, the summer of '73. My Dad was driving us to a pro MX race in Zoar Valley, NY (125cc World Championship/250 Trans AMA event) and that song came on the radio. My Dad was big band era, Herb Alpert was as modern as he ever went but when the bass intro started up......he started tappin' his foot, did a li'l slappin' on the steerin' wheel and even started singin' to it. ...he was sooooo busted.

    Guess he got his "brain salad surgery..." I have his strictly piano LP which is masterful. (Released under the credit of "Mac Rebenack Plays Dr. John").
