    Default Donald "Duck" Dunn....RIP

    Sadly one of the most legendary bass players of all time has passed away.

    Default so, so, sad.

    I remember as a little kid hanging out with my dad we went to a little diner to get a burger. The jukebox started playing Green Onions by Booker T. & the M.G.'s, I was mesmerized by that groove. Then a few years later I started playing bass and Duck Dunn was first musician I knew by name and I listened over and over to all those old Stax/Volt records. My musical tastes have gone many directions over the years, but Duck Dunn's grooves are still sweet music to my soul.

    Thanks Duck!!!
