Donald “Duck” Dunn died in Tokyo last week at age 70, doing what he loved, playing bass. He was on tour.

Dunn is best known as a member of Booker T and the MGs, backing almost all of the Stax Records stars in the 60s and 70s.

In his 70 years he played with Blues Brothers, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Neil Young, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Creedence Clearwater, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, & Steely Dan.

By all accounts he lead a full life. Most bass players worship the guy. As an icon in the history of Soul and Pop music he was a living legend. So we are saluting Don in this podcast. Hope you enjoy it.
