Donald "Duck" Dunn

Sunday, December 27, 2015
I grew up in Memphis and have fond memories of Duck coming to our lake place at Sardis to fish with my dad.

Duck was about 16 years older than me. I knew he was a legend in memphis... But I had no idea at the time that he would become a legend known the world over.

Duck's dad (Jim) spent many weekends with us fishing and hanging out. You never knew what other famous musicians Might Show up with Duck to go fishing.

Duck bought his sister Pat a white two door cougar (circa 1969? Maybe) as a gift. Duck's dad picked it up and we both drove it to the lake for a "test drive." Duck was a Generous guy who loved his family.

When I turned 15, Ducks dad drove me to Oxford Ms so I could take my drivers test because my dad was too sick to do it. Jim Dunn was like a second father to me.

RIP... I Hope you've both with my dad and you guys have all found all the best places to fish.

As the song goes, If there's a rock and roll Heaven, then you know they've got a hell of a band. Now they gain one hell of a bass.

Being from Memphis, and growing up in the same era, I had the pleasure to hear BT and the MGs play, and also Duck with Steve as the Mar Keys....He turned out to be a great bassist and I have followed somewhat over the years. Very sorry to hear of his passing and my prayers go to his family and friends.

I really enjoyed his music. It seems that as time goes by, God picks the flowers from His garden. He picked one of the best!

As I watch the Stax 50th Anniversary and seeing you play along with the MG's that red Fender Jazz bass I am reminded that you are gone. That sweet, unique bottom that you produced for years is silenced forever but, your legacy lives
on. From a musician that can appreciate
what you did for the art. LJ
