Missing New Orleans for the Millionth Time (or Is It Billionth?)

Here's a beautiful picture, courtesy of my friend Allan Hoffman, of two of New Orleans' favorite sons.

The gentleman on the left is  well- known Rock and Roll legend Mac Rebennak, Jr. AKA Dr. John.

The person at whom he is pointing is Irving Banister, legendary New Orleans guitarist, band leader and raconteur.

I don't know Mac, have never met him, but I love his music and appreciate him mightily.

However, I sure do know and love my pal Irving. Long may he reign as the Prince of New Orleans musicians, striding the city like the great colossus that he is- the best kept secret in New Orleans.

Thanks, Allan.
