Wilson Pickett RIP

Veteran US soul singer Wilson Pickett has died, aged 64, following a heart
attack. His management company confirmed Pickett’s death, adding that the
singer had been in poor health for the past year – having not performed
since 2004.

Pickett rose to fame in the 1960s through hits like ‘In The Midnight Hour’
and ‘Mustang Sally’. He continued to perform regularly until he became ill
at the start of last year. He was inducted into the US Rock And Roll Hall Of
Fame in 1991.

Pickett’s son Michael Wilson told a Washington TV station yesterday: “He did
his part. It was a great ride, a great trip. I loved him and I’m sure he was
well-loved, and I just hope that he’s given his props.”
