Tributes have been pouring in from all corners of the music world following the death of legendary musician Dr. John.

The New Orleans-born musician was renowned for his eclectic style, incorporating blues, jazz, boogie-woogie, rock, funk and more.

Malcolm John 'Mac' Rebennack Jr. began life as a professional musician at the tender age of 13, and adopted the 'Dr. John' persona in tribute to a Haitian voodoo healer who lived in New Orleans. Elements of voodoo were often incorporated into his extravagant live shows in the 1960s. He struggled with addiction for much of his early life, but overcame his heroin addiction in the late 1980s and had been sober since.

His family released a statement revealing that he died of a heart attack yesterday (June 6th).

His most recent album was 2014's 'Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch'.

Over the years, he worked with countless musicians. Many of them have been paying tribute to him on social media, as well as a multitude of his celebrity fans. Others who had worked with him, including David Simon, writer/creator of TV show Treme, also shared their memories.
