Donald "Duck" Dunn

Apropos nothing:- for those of us who spend most of the 80s On A Mission From God today's papers have the obituary of Donald "Duck" Dunn. He died, aged 70, in his sleep whilst on tour with Steve Cropper.

Been a while since I watched the movie. Time to introduce the kids to it.

"We had a band powerful enough to turn goat's p*ss into gasoline".

PS Besides being in "Murph and the Magitones" he was also in the Mar-keys who's hit "Last Night" was the end theme to Bottom.

Bugger! In my humble defense, I haven't seen the movie in 10 years!

There are only three films you ever need to see, John Belushi is in two of them.

Nothing matters very much, most things don't matter at all.

Animal House and Blade Runner are the other two.

One of my favourites has always been:

Are you the Police?

No Ma'am we're musicians

Or:

Sh*t

What

Rollers

No

Yeah

Sh*t

A brilliant film, obviously. First saw it in my late 20s. As a musician, he was much more than one film. He played with Booker T & the MGs and also with Otis Redding, Clapton et al. However, as part of this film he and the others (he died touring with Steve Cropper) helped expand my (and it seems many others) musical horizons; for that I'll always be grateful.

2 fried chickens and a coke

And some dry white toast...

Cheers

Did we still have the visor covers when "the preacher" was the boss of 230?

wasnt it "4 fried Chickens and a Coke".

Frank Oz and Stephen Speilberg had cameos in the film as well!
