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

Actually, that's not the original Stax version of 'Hold On' you posted, so it might not be Duck on this version.

Dang, dying sucks. Yeah, Duck was a rock.

He went fast, eh?

A good friend of mine was recently dx'd with bone cancer.... it ain't gonna be a pleasant ride. This morning I was recalling some ferocious gypsy jazz jams we enjoyed at San Onofre, where he was so in the groove, and I pray that he pulls through so we can enjoy another 10 or 20 years on the sand. Here's a layed back summer session...he's the fellow playing the fancy Fender Woody.
