I must sadly report that Donald "Duck" Dunn is dead at age 70. That might not mean much to most of you, but as a bass guitar player, he was one of the greats, an icon in fact. I guess he is best known as the bassist for the group, Booker T. and the MG's. Remember them? "Green Onions", "Hang'em High", "Hip Hug Her".......yeah, now you remember.
I like to think of Dunn as an influence of mine. I remember spending hours listening to his rifts and attempting to mimic his style. So sorry to see him go.
