Passing of an Icon - R.I.P. Wilson Pickett

It is with a heavy heart and a tear in my eye that I pass along the info that Wilson Pickett has died. An icon of soul, his music helped define the sounds of late 60's Motown. "Wicked" Pickett had a style unmatched by any since, a boastful and emotional outpouring that was unmistakable. The man was unstoppable, touring and performing up until he fell ill, and eventually died of a heart attack at the age of 64.

Thanks, Wilson. You helped me define my own music and singing, and without you, I'd be a different person. I may be an atheist, but your 'soul' will, without question, live forever.
