Donald "Duck" Dunn 1941-2012

Donald Dunn made a mark with his groovy bass lines as a session musician for Stax Records in the 1960s. The self-taught Dunn did not copy others and created a unique sound of his own instead. Below is just the beginning of his discography at his website He died with his boots on in Tokyo. His bass has been heard countless times in movies, and he himself appeared in the The Blues Brothers films.

Live performance: Time Is Tight (1969). Feels like team spirit.
