Singer, songwriter, pianist and producer Allen Toussaint passed away on Sunday of a heart attack following a concert in Madrid, Spain. He was 77.
Toussaint was a New Orleans musical legend whose career spanned 60 years. He wrote songs that were covered by hundreds of artists including “Southern Nights” (Glen Campbell), “Play Something Sweet (Brickyard Blues)” (Three Dog Night), “Working in a Coal Mine” (Lee Dorsey), “Mother-in-Law” (Ernie K. Doe) and “Fortune Teller” (The Rolling Stones). His influence on rock ‘n roll cannot be underestimated.
Have a listen to “Southern Nights”. You can understand why Glen Campbell and so many other musicians were so eager to record the music of Allen Toussaint.
