“Duck” Walk Down Beale to Honor Stax Legend Donald Dunn

Posted By on Tue, May 22, 2012 at 11:50 AM

The life of Booker T. & the MGs bassist Donald “Duck” Dunn — a key figure in Memphis music history and one of the rock and soul's signature sidemen — will be celebrated tomorrow, Wednesday, May 23rd, with a funeral procession on Beale Street.

Dunn died at the age of 70 on May 13th while touring in Tokyo. Following a private ceremony earlier in the day, the Stax sound cornerstone will be honored with a public funeral procession on Beale. Friends and fans have made plans to form a second line to follow the procession and will meet at Fourth and Beale at 4:30 p.m.
