    RIP Dave Bartholomew

    Musician and composer Dave Bartholomew died 23 June 2019 at age 100. He wrote/cowrote, among many songs, "I Hear You Knockin" recorded by Smiley Lewis and by Dave Edmunds, Fats Domino's hit "Ain't That A Shame," and Chuck Berry's "My Ding A Ling." Rest in peace.
    Can this be the swan song? The final elbow?

    Or 'Toy Bell' as it was also known in the 50s.

    Sad times for New Orleans, losing Mac Rebennack/Dr John and now Dave Bartholomew. You see Bartholomew's name on the credits of so many great songs.
