"walk through the fire children, then you fly through the smoke"


*The name 'Coco Robicheaux' is repeated in the song "I Walk on Gilded Splinters" from Dr. John's 1968 album, Gris-Gris,and heard here performed by Humble Pie. 
Coco's real name was Curtis John Arceneaux (October 25, 1947 – November 25, 2011).
A blues musician from Louisiana, Robicheaux (claimed that he played regularly with Mac Rebennack (Dr. John) in the early 1960s, and) said: " In voodoo they call the gilded splinters the points of a planet. Mystically they appear like little gilded splinters, like little gold, like fire that holds still. They’re different strengths at different times. I guess it ties in with astrology, and influence the energy".
