Donald "Duck" Dunn 1941-2012 RIP

"The music of Booker T. & The MG's is in that rare distinctive category of only a handfull of cultural innovators such as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. They were a major empowerment to the Popular Music phenomenon. To put into proper perspective, most of the bands mentioned above always recognized Booker T. & The MG's as their favorite band. Plus, when you stop and think about it, Booker T. & The MG's were just an instrumental group. Yet, they were the musicans playing behind literally hundreds of monster hits and superstar artists. Duck Dunn was the backbone of many of those hits and definitely the thump in Booker T. & The MG's funk." - Phillip Rauls

Wow - brings back memories of one of my all time favorites, Green Onions, one of the best instrumental song. Thanks for jogging my memory. Love ya, Lee
