Dr John Has Died So New Orleans Is Throwing A Party

New Orleans is the only city in the US where you see people in funeral clothing and ask if they had a good time at the memorial. Some of the best parties I've ever attended were outside funeral homes where everybody's drinking cold beer and eating hot barbecue straight off the pit.

That's the kind of sendoff I'd like...
 
What a great and unique entertainer he was.

Roughly 3k people at the parade. The brass band was pickup so they needed a few minutes to get it together. It was blazing hot, nearly 100 on the blacktop. I suspect there will be a minimum of 2 more Dr John second lines. The official Leah Chase parade is on Monday, that will make the fourth parade for her in a little over a week.

Man, I miss seeing people walking around in the Southern heat with a small brown paper bag containing an ice cold beer! My family specialised in that!

It's nice to be able to publicly consume where the cops don't give a fig.

Two weeks later.
 
The final Dr John memorial second line - the official one - went off yesterday afternoon in 115 degree heat on the blacktop streets. Several thousand people crowded through the CBD and the upriver fringe of the French Quarter til we finally arrived at St Louis Cemetery.

Sadly we heard reports that the invite-only memorial inside the Orpheum only had a handful of people attending. You know Dr John would've kicked the doors open and welcomed all his fans inside but the family refused to allow the thousands in the street access.
