    Dr. John, a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a six-time Grammy winner, died Thursday morning from a heart attack, said publicist and social media manager Karen Beninato.

    Dr. John, whose real name was Malcolm John Rebennack Jr, was 77.

    Beninato's post on Dr. John's Facebook page said memorial arrangements will be announced.

    I saw him and his great bands a few times. I liked the skull he placed on his piano and that La. voodoo charm he passed off. My favorite song was "Food for Thot"
