May 02, 2012Lots of people clamor to meet Tom and the guys on a daily basis, but it's rare when the shoe's on the other foot.

A legendary bass guitarist, record producer, and songwriter, Dunn is most well-known as the session bassist for Stax Records, where his iconic playing backed the likes of Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Albert King, Arthur Conley, Sam & Dave and many more.
