AUERBACH TO HELM DR. JOHN DOC

The Black KeysDan Auerbach will make his directorial debut with a documentary about Dr. John. RadicalMedia will produce in partnership with Impact Artist Productions.

“I’m honored to have the subject be my friend Dr. John. He was such a unique individual and a shining example of the great melting pot of American music,” said Auerbach, who produced Dr. John’s 2012 album, Locked Down.

“From his mysterious voodoo stage persona Dr. John, to his real, humble self Mac Rebannack—the street poet, the family man, the junkie, the Grammy Award winner and all that’s in between, this documentary will introduce the world to him in a way they haven't seen him before," the director continued. "I’m still learning bits about him that I never knew, and I hope the movie provides a lens into the story of the life of Dr John."

Jon Kamen and Jon Doran will serve as executive producers for RadicalMedia, which is currently enjoying kudos for Summer of Soul, from another musician turned director, Ahmir Thompson, aka Questlove.
