Pretty poor week for celebrity deaths. Let's hope things pick up a bit next week.

RIP Donald 'Duck' Dunn.
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

A sad loss. Many of our younger board members won't remember how strong the Stax sound was.

I hope a British TV station runs a repeat of the Blues Brothers (I) movie as a tribute.

Dunn and Shelby - two legendary figures in their own fields. Duck was still playing, right to the end, too. :(

Not wanting to arouse fears, but that's the drummer and bass player from this album gone within days of each other. Hope things don't go in threes, as superstitious types often claim. :(

Only saw Duck once, when he was in Clapton's band in 83.

Great player. RIP.
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

The Kennedy "curse" continues as Bobby Kennedy Jnr's wife Mary Kennedy dies.

so any time some elderly relative of the Kennedy's dies, it's part of the curse?

She was 52 and had a drug problem, like many Americans, and she died. It's not part of a curse, it's called the circle of life.

And as she was 52, she was just 2 when JFK was shot, are you going to tell me it's all part of the conspiricy next?

Not at all but a fair few have died young. Please note curse was in inverted commas.
