cornerstone of memphis's historic house band, dunn, originally a member of the markey's, replaced steinberg in 63, and became part of the furniture...if there was a genuine answer at the time to jamerson, this would have to be the man...the stax studios reverberated to his consistant sound...god rest your soul brother, amen.

A TRUE legendary bass player. at 70 it seems young these days but to pass away in his sleep after performing at a gig would seem the kindest way to go for me

RIP another who has left an indelible note on the music in my life... thankyou Mr Dunn

.... here's a clip that a French company filmed down in Memphis, at 4mins 45 secs. there is a back of the neck hair lifting moment for me....... memories of youth!

Just heard. Good to have Soul Source here to confirm and get more info. Very sad at that age, but good to hear he was still performing.

I was lucky enough to see him in The Otis Redding show tour in Liverpool '67. I love picking out his bass when listening to my Memphis tracks, always distinctive and innovative.

Like EDDIE said, one of the men who became part of the permanent soundtrack to our lives and before a lot of us even knew his identity.....Can't believe it, spent a good forty minutes after the footall yesterday, downloading BOOKER T instrumentals, listened to them all night last night, woke up and saw this...A great loss to the music.... :hatsoff2:
