Donald “Duck” Dunn passed away on May 13th in a Tokyo hotel room after performing a double show.

He’s most famous as a bassist for Booker T & the MG’s, but I’ll always remember him for his role in the Blues Brothers movie with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.

His basses mostly include 50’s and 60’s Fender Precisions, but also the Lakland Skyline series basses.

As sad day for bassist everywhere.
