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…

  1. Carroll Shelby (racecar driver / automobile designer)
  2. Donald “Duck” Dunn (Booker T & The MGs bassist / Blues Brothers band member)
  3. ???

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 :-)
