Just a quick note to acknowledge the passing of a great one, Donald “Duck” Dunn, on May 13.  A member of Booker T & the MG’s, he replaced the original bassist, he is forever connected to Green Onions, even though he was not on the original recording.

He was also notable as a session player for Stax Records, which means he is on about 50 zillion songs recorded there.  He also performed with a multitude of bands, such as CCR, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Rod Stewart, Levon Helm, Bob Dylan and the list goes on and on.    He was also the pipe smoking, wild hair bass player in the Blues Brothers.
