Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Amigo del blog, Eric Baker, requested something from Booker T & The MGs, so here you go, Eric. I went with this more recent clip rather than something vintage because, annoyingly, back in the ’60s the camera tended to dwell on the musicians’ faces and on the audience rather than on the guitar playing (or organ playing, in this case).
Steve Cropper’s famous lick still bites, doesn’t it? And from what I can tell, that’s Donald “Duck” Dunn on bass — not long for this world when this was taped. He died a few years ago, effectively breaking up the MGs, awesome house band at Stax Records in the glory days of Memphis R&B. Interestingly, Dunn wasn’t the bass player on “Green Onions.” He came along in ’65, taking over for founding bassist Lewie Steinberg. (And yes, I got all of this from Wikipedia; the facts were not at my fingertips.)
And don’t forget that Yesterday Road is on sale for 99 cents. I sold a whopping two copies yesterday, which earned me 70 cents! You can also give it as a gift if you already own it — just follow the EZ instructions on Amazon where it says “Give as a Gift.”
