This week, Jamie meets one of his true musical heroes: the piano player, singer and composer Dr. John.

Dr. John talks about his incredible life and career, from being brought up on the voodoo music of his home city New Orleans, and the influence of Professor Longhair; to being shot in the hand and consequently moving from playing the guitar to the piano.

With a new album out this month, Dr. John also talks about his new project with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and inspiring a new generation of fans.
