too bad, but Duck had an underlying condition - but at least he had sense enough not to live in Memphis - he lived where he was truly appreciated in SW FL -Sarasota/Manatee and Snead Island - we use to see him around here all the time - he knew where to come home to from around the world, and I'll leave his comments about the true Memphis for another time - but I like others are glad to come home to a great place, not a place plagued with bad histories - and the same thing is said by other local , such as Brian Johnson (AC/DC), Dicky Betts (Allmand Bros), Dan Toler (Allmand), and many many others. I'll miss Duck for sure, and the last time we actually played together WAS in Memphis, at a place then called The Cruel Shoe on Poplar.
Time moves on for all of us - Donna Summer (naples FL), Duck, Gibbs (BeeGees), and others this year it seems. We all come here "to die", no doubt - might as well find a place to be the "happiest" - better places to live and die besides Memphis
