We are humbled to present this. As we told you two weeks ago, the Grammy-winning Rock N Roll Hall of Famers Steve Cropper, Donald Duck Dunn, Eddie Floyd and the MGs band were appearing in Marshall. We couldn’t believe it. We were grateful to Jim & Winnie Davis of Davis Entertainment who brought them here for a fundraiser on April 27, 2012. The day after that amazing performance, the band left for a tour in Japan. And two weeks later, we were so saddened to hear that the legendary bass player, Donald Duck Dunn, had died in Tokyo on May 12, 2012. RIP Duck Dunn. See the historic footage of their final US performance, here in Marshall, Tx, recorded by Jack Canson – right here:
