Bassplayer Donald 'Duck' Dunn Died
Grammy-winning American bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn, who helped shape the blues and soul music scenes in the 1960s and 1970s, died Sunday in Tokyo. He was 70. A former member of legendary band Booker T and the MG's, Dunn died in his sleep in a hotel room in the Japanese capital after performing two shows at Blue Note Tokyo. As a house bass player at the Stax label in Memphis, Dunn's fingers worked the frets on a number of classics, including Elvis sessions on July 24 and 25 1973. As well as playing sessions with names like Neil Young, Eric Clapton and Jerry Lee Lewis, Dunn earned himself a little Hollywood glitter when he appeared as himself in "The Blues Brothers" starring comedians John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.
