Bummer. Guy was amazing and played with some great musicians.


NEW YORK—Donald "Duck" Dunn, the bassist who helped create the gritty Memphis soul sound at Stax Records in the 1960s as part of the legendary group Booker T. and the MGs and contributed to such classics as "In the Midnight Hour," "Hold On, I'm Coming" and "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay," died Sunday at 70.



Cropper left to become a session player at Stax, the Memphis record company that would become known for its soul recordings and artists such as Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Isaac Hayes and the Staples Singers.


RIP Donald Duck Dunn

Great session musicians for a lot of bands. While Booker T. and the MGs are mostly remembered for the awesome Green Onions album they later also created a lot of good music with Donald Dunn who brought a different vibe to their sound than Lewis Steinberg.
And of course he will always be remembered as part of the Blues Brothers, they're one of two fictional bands (the other being Spinal Tap) that turned from a fictional created for a TV show and a movie band to a real one, making concerts.
