He was one of the most recorded bass players in history, often working with Steve Cropper on guitar...


By Associated Press, AP

TOKYO — Bass player and songwriter Donald "Duck" Dunn, a member of the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame band Booker T. and the MGs and the Blues Brothers band, has died in Tokyo. He was 70.

Dunn was in Tokyo for a series of shows. News of his death was posted on the Facebook site of his friend and fellow musician Steve Cropper, who was on the same tour. Cropper said Dunn died in his sleep.

Miho Harasawa, a spokeswoman for Tokyo Blue Note, the last venue Dunn played, confirmed he died alone early Sunday. She had no further details.

Dunn, who was born in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1941, performed on recordings with Eric Clapton, Neil Young and many others, and specialized in blues, gospel and soul. He played himself in the 1980 hit movie "The Blues Brothers."

He received a lifetime achievement Grammy award in 2007 for his work with Booker T. and the MGs.

One of the best and a major part of some of the best rhythm music. I saw him with Booker T on the Otis Redding 1967 UK tour.
RIP Mr. Dunn

Most people would be amazed at the number of tunes they love and on which Duck Dunn played bass. Like most of the great sesssion players, he steered clear of the limelight and just cut great tracks and created great performances one after another. Heaven for Dunn would be a studio, a pair of headphones, and solid drum track. I hope he gets it.

James Jamerson, Louis Satterfield, Davis Hood and Duck Dunn from Motown, Chess, Muscle Shoals and Stax, respectively defined 'in the pocket'.

RIP, Mr. Dunn you've left behind a great body of work and all of us deeply in your debt.

He certainly "had a band powerful enough to turn goat piss into gasoline".

Been playing my vinyl LP of the first Albert King Stax sessions.
That's where that great rhythm (with Duck on bass and Al Jackson on drums) really shines.

Farewell to a great. He represented class rather than flashiness - a model bassist.
