Under a Hoodoo Moon: The Life of the Night Tripper

By Mac Rebennack, John Mac Rebennack, John, Mac Macrebennack
"Under a Hoodoo Moon" is one of rock's most original and infectious autobiographies. In its pages, Dr. John, the alchemist of New Orleans psychedelic funk, tells his story, and what a story it is: of four decades on the road, on the charts, in and out of trouble, but always steeped in the piano-based soulful grind of New Orleans rhythmn & blues of which he is the acknolwedged high guru. From childhood as a prodigal prodigy among 1950s legends from Little Richard and Fats Domino to sesssions with the Rolling Stones and the Band; from recording studio to juke joint to penitentiary to world tours; from Mac Rebennack to Dr. John the Night Tripper, this is the testament of our funkiest rock storyteller. Full of wit and wordplay, tales of hoodoo saints and high-living sinners, "Under a Hoodoo Moon" casts a spell as hard to resist as Mardi Gras itself.

"One of the most uninhibited music biographies ever published, scary and funny at the same time." --"The New York Times" "Mud-funky...fascinating and gritty." --"Los Angeles Times" "Colorful and folksy, raucous and raunchy...required reading" --"Pittsburgh Post-Gazette" "Ranks alongside Miles Davis's provocative autobiography...fascinating" --"Down Beat" "One of those books you genuinely cannot put down." --"Relix" "As funky and seductive as a syncopated New Orleans rhythm." --"Rolling Stone"
