Coco's gone. New Orleans cannot be the same without him.
Coco's greatest song, "Walk With the Spirit," a truly spiritual song that was our personal battery-charger during the dark days after the 2005 flood, is here. The album it was on, 1995's Spiritland, is one of our all-time faves.
Sometimes I walk all by myself
I don’t want to talk to no one else
And I close my eyes
And I feel the spirit rise
That he had made this album made his attendence for the entire duration of The Year Before the Flood party all that more precious to us.
Season 3 of Treme won't be the same either, without a bit of Coco.
