Neil D Obit: D.L. Menard (1932-2017) (9) RE: Obit: D.L. Menard (1932-2017) 19 Aug 17


The world is a poorer place with the loss of this legend. The video linked by Guest is one I've watched dozens of times, like any time my spirits need lifted. DL Menard performing "The Back Door" with L'Angelus backing is as close to perfection that music can get. And the live video complete with Cajun couples dancing the two-step in a farm yard and DL flirting with Katie and Paige during the fiddle solo, makes me smile every time.
I recently watched DL's funeral on Youtube, teary-eyed throughout. There was a little bit of preaching but mostly it was friends, bandmates and family, singing and telling DL stories. The one song that was not performed was "The Back Door" as it was explained that DL would surely be entering Heaven through the front door.
