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

In 1962 or '63 (I was thirteen at the time)I was already blown away by music from people like Bessie Smith, Little Walter and so on (there's just so many to list). I had a friend who's father had a huge appreciation and a huge collection of what was referred to as race music in those days. I knew who Cropper and Dunn were at a very early age. For a white kid in the suburbs of Minneapolis that was considered very odd and by some as wrong (go figure).
Around my house it was all about Sinatra, Martino, Como, Doris Day etc. etc. Couldn't stand it.
Of course along came Stax, Motown, Atlantic and soooo many more.
All the sudden it wasn't just Muddy and so on, I had all that plus all these new artists and variations on the many genres' that came before them.
I felt lucky and ahead of my time or behind the time's depending on how one looked at it. Cropper and Dunn were huge influences on me musically and appreciation there of. I still to this day can't express how much these people influenced my life. Without this music life to me just seemed meaningless. Music was and forever will be the single most important thing in my life.
Growing up in the insanity that was my family, music I believed saved my life or at least my sanity.
You'll be missed Donald Dunn, especially by people like me that discovered you at such a young age. From my heart, thanks for all you gave. Although we never met you were a big influence on the direction my musical tastes evolved.

So many will miss the soulful playing of the duck, I am a bass player that have copied his dtyle for eight years and I must truly say his inspiration to many bass players encluding me is truly appreciated. He just had a natrual talent for that instrrument that sill many are trying to copy.

God bless you Duck Dunn and rest in peace.
