    I was shocked today to learn that Donald "Duck" Dunn, bass guitarist with Booker T and the MGs, and source of the famous quote from "Blues Brothers" that "We had a band powerful enough to turn goat's p*** into gasoline!" has passed away. Donald was on tour in Tokyo along with another MG and "Blues Brothers" veteran, Steve Cropper. He was 70. Gone too soon!!!
