RIP Duck Dunn

Donald "Duck" Dunn, extraordinary bassist who played on hundreds of hit records and was a member of Stax's house band (as well as Booker T. & the M.G.s) died this weekend.

Known to many as the pipe-smoking bassist in the Blues Brothers band, Dunn's bassline anchored most of the classic Memphis soul records of the 1960s.

In 1970, Booker T. & the M.G.s released McLemore Avenue, which featured instrumental versions of songs from the Beatles' Abbey Road album. McLemore Avenue was the home of the Stax recording studio.
