What Donald “Duck” Dunn done? Booker T. & the MGs, Ray Charles, The Blues Brothers, Roy Buchanan, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Isaac Hayes, Albert King, Ritchie Havens, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Elvis Presley, Diana Ross, Muddy Waters, Bill Withers, Neil Young, The Manhattan Transfer, The Staples Singers, Boz Scaggs, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Freddie King, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Jerry Lee Lewis…to name a few.

Said the late Mr. Dunn, who had an impeccable wholesome tone, an intuitive sense of melody, and could sizzle in the pocket like no other: “I listen to the first playback, then go back into the studio and play half of what I did!” I can’t think of a better role model for a bass player.
