    MAYHEM REST IN PEACE Dr John dies aged 77 — farewell to the last star who inspired Jim Henson’s chaotic Muppets’ band

    BLUES great Dr John, who has died aged 77, inspired Jim Henson’s chaotic Muppets’ band.
    Dr Teeth and The Electric Mayhem’s characters were all based on musical icons and Dr John was the last one left. AMY JONES reveals who was meant to be who in the group.

    The musicians that inspired Dr Teeth and The Electric Mayhem's characters have all died.

    Dr Teeth and Dr John

    Dr Teeth was inspired by Dr John, who died from a heart attack on June 6
    THE singer/pianist, famous for his extravagant headwear, inspired band leader Dr Teeth.

    Janice and Janis Joplin

    Janice was inspired by Janis Joplin, the hippy artist who died from an overdose in the '70s
    SINGER Janis, who died from an overdose in 1970 aged just 27, gave Janice her long, hippy hair and flower-power clothes.
    Janis didn’t play an instrument but sassy Janice plays bass, trumpet and trombone.

    Floyd Pepper and John Lennon

    Floyd Pepper was inspired by Beatles star John Lennon
    BEATLE Lennon’s 1967 hippy period, which produced the classic Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, was the influence for Floyd’s name and costume.
    John was shot dead aged 40 in 1980.

    Zoot as Gato Barbieri

    The resemblance between Zoot and Gato Barbieri is uncanny
    ARGENTINIAN sax legend Barbieri was one of the first major Latin jazz stars and won a Grammy for scoring sex film Last Tango In Paris.
    He gave Zoot his shades and hat look. Died in 2016 aged 83.

    Animal as Keith Moon

    Animal is based on late The Who drummer Keith Moon
    THE Who’s legendary wild drummer Keith died aged 32 in 1978 from an overdose.
    He inspired Animal’s ferocious drumming style and mad chants of “BEAT DRUMS! BEAT DRUMS!” and “WO-MAN!”





    So who plays the trumpet?

    Will never forget a live concert, free, he gave under the St Louis Arch. I sat on the steps on the Arch grounds with my sister and BIL. The stage was on the levee. Dr John was the opening act for BB King. You can't beat that for free. It was magical, seeing the tugboats go by on the mighty Mississippi, listening to Dr John and then BB. It's a shame to lose such a giant in the music industry. RIP, Dr John.

    The singing is so fine but the piano solo on this one is the top of the line.

    When the Austin Record Convention comes around in the Fall, I suspect his records will be in high demand.
