Wilson Pickett, soul singer of the 1960s, just died of a heart attack, 64 years old. Just heard it on the BBC. Sorry if a dupe- didn't see it in search.

Sad to lose the Wicked Pickett.

Also sad that there is so little response to this thread.

He didn't play heavy metal, and he didn't do rap.

He's also over thirty.

Therefore most nobody here cares.

I sincerely hope I'm wrong on the last one.

Years of hard living and numerous ex-wives clawing at his $$ got to him, I think. The life of a soul man was not an easy one.

I really enjoyed his music, though I wasn't even yet born when he was making much of it. I loved a lot of the music from the 60's, and soul was a particularly genre I found exceptional during this period.
