Jeez!! 2012 is turning out to be the year we lost the heavy-weight icons in music.
and now Duck Dunn. This guy was one of the few bass players of note in the history of pop music. I can think of many bass players, but Duck is at the top of the list. I got to see him perform with Neil Young about 10 years ago when he did his Neil Young & Friends tour. RIP Duck. You and the Stax label will live on!

Oh gosh that is sad. I loved his work on Otis' version of "Satisfaction" amongst many others. Very sad.

I've been reading Steve Cropper's announcement on Facebook for a couple days, and I'm still just so stunned. They had basically just gotten off the stage. And he just died. It's awful, awful. Took awhile to take that in: that someone who contributed so much to music, and was still performing, right then, just . . . died. Right after a show. Cropper had written some recent Facebook "notes" about how both he and Dunn were upset about other recent music deaths
And then Dunn died.
