Donald “Duck” Dunn, the bassist who was part of the legendary group Booker T. and the MGs has died in his sleep according to a Facebook post by musician and friend Steve Cropper.

Dunn, who was part of the Stax Records in-house band as Booker T. and the MGs, contributed to classics such as “In the Midnight Hour,” ”Hold On I’m Coming” and “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay”

Booker T. and the MGs had its own hits, including “Hang ‘Em High,” ‘’Soul-Limbo” and, before Dunn joined the band, the cool 1962 instrumental “Green Onions” and was later inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Dunn also did session work on recordings by Clapton, Young, Dylan, Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty.

He is survived by his wife, June; a son, Jeff; and a grandchild, Michael.
