Artist Of The Week: Wilson Pickett

I figured that everyone might like one of the original masters of soul music so this weeks artist is Wicked Wilson Pickett. Pickett was a hit machine in the 60s. Mustang Sally, Midnight Hour, Land Of A Thousand Dances, 634-5789, and many more. Also anyone who loved the movie The Commitments can't forget the memorable scene of Wilson Pickett's limo showing up after the gig. (if you have seen the movie you know what I mean, if you haven't seen the movie WATCH IT!!!!!!!!) Pickett who died last year also made an appearance in Blues Brothers 2000. That movie was pretty bad, but Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd, and Johnny Lang did a great job with 634-5789 in the flick. As always the videos are found on the left side of the blog in the Google video box.
