    Granger and his wife are donating River's organs "so other children will be given a second chance at life." (River is wearing the red shirt in the photo.) I've often heard it said that no parent should have to bury a child. This story is heartbreaking.

    After getting kicked out of Jesuit High School for his heroin addiction, Malcolm John Rebennack performed with various bands in New Orleans bars and clubs, worked as an A&R man at Ace Records and spent two years in prison for dealing drugs and running a brothel. In the 1960s he was one of the Los Angeles session musicians known collectively as The Wrecking Crew and in 1980 he wrote and recorded the original "Love that chicken from Popeyes" jingle.

    Senegal's name was misspelled Sinegal on a passport and he decided keeping the misspelled name would be easier than getting a new passport. He released several albums and played on hundreds of recordings by Joe Tex, Lee Dorsey, Paul Simon, Slim Harpo, Barbara Lynn, Allen Toussaint, Clifton Chenier, Buckwheat Zydeco and other artists. Senegal was inducted into the Louisiana Blues Hall Of Fame in 1999.
