The death of Duck Dunn today once again reminds us that an amazing generation of musicians from the 60s and 70s will, sooner or later, be taking their leave.
Who takes their place in the rock ‘n’ roll pantheon?
It’s hard to think of many, if any, players hailing from the 80s and 90s who could seriously be accorded the legendary status of a Brian Wilson, a Van Morrison, a Roy Harper, and so on.
His nibs from The Smiths? The blokey from Supergrass? Him who doesn’t make the cheese from Blur? That one who does the quirky dancing in Radiohead? Er... that's all I can think of off the top of my bald bonce.
Go on. Try it.
Let me know how you get on.
