In the Midnight Hour.


Rico just told me Wilson Pickett has left us.

Born in Alabama, moved to Detroit as a teen, found Jerry Wexler with Stax in Memphis. In the Midnight Hour, Land of 1000 Dances, and Funky Broadway. The smiling memories and dancing feet of millions are legacy. If that man had a dollar for every time someone played one of his songs, he'd have more money than Wal-mart. I hope to make some of kz's post services jam about him tomorrow night. Thanks for everything, Wilson. You've blessed us with some amazing music.
