Like many things in my life, I often see them through the filter of movies.
I was saddened to hear about the passing of Donald 'Duck" Dunn over the weekend, because he was involved in what I consider to be one of the coolest things film can do.
I think that The Blues Brothers movie,in which Dunn played himself, achieved something not a lot of movies can claim:
1) It was a movie about music. Some of the best film (in my opinion) revolve around music.
2) The movie pulled off the balance between comedy and passion for music.
3) Dunn and all The Blues Brothers acted, played themselves and performed great music in it.
That's a trifecta homerun for me. Thanks for the music Duck.
