    One of the great Funk Soul / Funk musicians has passed away at the age of 70: bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn. He was still playing and touring - he had been on stage in Tokyo just a few hours before he died. "Duck" held down the bass chair on many, many classic Stax recordings e.g. Otis Redding, and played with Booker T and the MGs with Steve Cropper (anyone for Green Onions?. He was also in The Blues Brothers band and film.

    The history of military conflict in Afghanistan [has] been one of initial success, followed by long years of floundering and ultimate failure. We’re not going to repeat that mistake.
