RIP brother, you were one of the good ones.

'My name's MCA, I gotta license to kill. I think you know what time it is, it's time to get ill'

Thank you for being a huge part of my musical soundtrack throughout the years.  Check Your Head is still one of my top 5 releases of all time.

I always thought Vidal Sassoon was just a marketing character like Ronald McDonald.

Now that is sad. My first car ride was in Cobra Shelby that my dad bought when my mom was in labor with me. He figured she couldn't say no if she was having a baby. The car was stolen out of our garage eighteen months later.

Donald Duck Dunn.   :(

Quote
TOKYO (AP) — Bass player and songwriter Donald "Duck" Dunn, a member of the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame band Booker T. and the MGs and the Blues Brothers band, has died in Tokyo. He was 70.

Dunn was in Tokyo for a series of shows. News of his death was posted on the Facebook site of his friend and fellow musician Steve Cropper, who was on the same tour. Cropper said Dunn died in his sleep.

Miho Harasawa, a spokeswoman for Tokyo Blue Note, the last venue Dunn played, confirmed he died alone early Sunday. She had no further details.

Dunn, who was born in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1941, performed on recordings with Eric Clapton, Neil Young and many others, and specialized in blues, gospel and soul. He played himself in the 1980 hit movie "The Blues Brothers."

He received a lifetime achievement Grammy award in 2007 for his work with Booker T. and the MGs.

Saw that about DD. I only ever knew him as the curious pipe-smoking dude from the Blues Brothers. Amazing to learn of his rich musical history, ditto Steve Cropper.

At least Matt "Guitar" Murphy is still going stong!

Matt Murphy is 82!  Hard to believe it.  He played the blues festival here last year and I was hoping to go but couldn't.
