Sad news.

Another great one. Anyone reading this board surely knows who Donald Dunn was and what he added to pop and soul music but here are a few performance highlights:

Green Onions (live from 1967) = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLfQ9SIRPP0
Midnight Hour = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGVGFfj7POA
Hold On (I'm Coming) = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9iiO-EVb-A&feature=relat...

As a final added bonus, here's a version of Green Onions done by The Blues Brothers from the album Made In America in 1980 when they were promoting the movie. This is a GREAT version in its own right. It has Duck Dunn on bass and Steve Cropper on guitar and I think Paul Schaffer on organ. Much better guitar solo from Steve Cropper than the original and a hilarious rap in the middle from Dan Akroyd.

Strangley, Booker T Jones just sat in last Thursday on David Letterman with the band.


WTH
