Spring is SUPPOSED to be the season of new life. But, lately, it seems to be the season for Celebrity Death Trifectas! No, I’m not reporting on a complete CDT. It’s only two-thirds complete. Though, the last two times I blogged about this, entry #3 came across the news wire almost immediately!
Where are we on the current CDT? It’s hard to keep track with the heavy volume lately…
- Carroll Shelby (racecar driver / automobile designer)
- Donald “Duck” Dunn (Booker T & The MGs bassist / Blues Brothers band member)
While these two guys were both well-known by millions, some may be hearing of them for the first time. If that’s your case, I found some video of both Carroll AND Donald I thought you might enjoy:
Shelby was the mastermind behind the Shelby Cobra. If you like cars that go fast, you owe a lot to this guy!
Donald “Duck” Dunn was the bassist for Booker T & The MGs. But, he’s even better known as the bassist for the Blues Brothers! You see him quite a bit (in between Jake & Elwood) in this clip from the movie. This is one of my favorite scenes :-)
