Blues Brothers' Donald 'Duck' Dunn Dead at 70
With that band he laid down bass lines on Otis Redding's Respect, Sam and Dave's Hold On I'm Coming and Albert King's Born Under a Bad Sign, among many others. He went on to play with Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Rod Stewart, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Jerry Lee Lewis, Levon Helm and Freddy King.
Dunn was semi-retired, partly caused by back problems which made walking painful. But he had just completed a five-night tour of Japan, ending with two shows in the Blue Note Night Club in Tokyo. He'd been playing as part of the Stax Show with MGs guitarist Steve Cropper and Stax singer Eddie Floyd.
