    I came to Texas as soon as I could
    Donald “Duck” Dunn, the bass guitarist whose bouncy rhythms helped define the Memphis soul sound of Stax Records and graced recordings by Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, the Blues Brothers, Booker T. and the MGs, Eric Clapton and Rod Stewart, died May 13 in Tokyo. He was 70.

    His longtime collaborator, guitarist Steve Cropper, announced Mr. Dunn’s death online but did not specify a cause. Mr. Dunn and Cropper had been performing at a Tokyo nightclub in a revue of Stax performers.

    He and Cropper got a restart from the original Blues Brothers film

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
