Dr. John Farfisas Around on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (VIDEO)


As promised, the forever-hip Dr. John turned in an appearance with the youngsters, including the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. Standing mostly still at the organ and wearing sunglasses, Mac was in perfect position to command the stage for the performance of "Revolution." As we've already been told very explicitly, ths track features The Night Tripper on the Farfisa organ for the first time since the 70s. Click through for video:


Dr. John's Schedule Locked Down for Album Release


Today, the recorded evidence of Dr. John's collaboration with the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, Locked Down, went out to the masses. And so, too, did Dr. John. First he played a pair of concerts at Woldenberg Park and the Brooklyn Academy of Music over the weekend. Then he got all interviewed up by NPR and The New York Times. Tonight, he'll be on TV for an appearance with Auerbach on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Bets are open for which NOLA musician Fallon will impersonate.


Dr. John Previews New Album with Black Keys Frontman


Yesterday, Rolling Stone released a glimpse of the new album from Dr. John and the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, Locked Down. The song, “Revolution,” which can be streamed here, includes a first-take solo by Mac back on a Farfisa organ, which he hasn’t played on since 1969. The album, which features a fleet of younger musicians handpicked by the Black Keys frontman, will be in stores April 3.
