    In Memory of Dr. John
    Michael Wilson

    Storied musician Dr. John—Mac Rebennack—has died at the age of 77. Dan Auerbach, who produced Dr. John's 2012 Nonesuch album, Locked Down, at his Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, spoke with Rolling Stone about his friendship and working relationship the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.

    "He was so one of a kind," Auerbach says. "He came from a time before social media and everything became one big thing. He could truly be unique, isolated in a way—that special gumbo. We lost one of the greatest musicians who ever lived and also one of the greatest reflections of this country, musically, in one man. He was a human melting pot, a human embodiment of what makes American music great. He grew up with different races and experiences, and it made him the most incredible mutt ever. We lost something that will never be duplicated."
