Wilson Pickett

Wilson Pickett (March 18, 1941 - January 19, 2006) was a renowned soul singer and songwriter with a fiery and edgy style. Known as "the Wicked Wilson Pickett," he was dubbed as being Atlantic Records' answer to James Brown. "In The Midnight Hour" (1965) was the first of many signature songs to make him a star. This song was followed by a succession of hits on both the R&B and pop charts that included "634-5789" (1966), "Mustang Sally" (1966), "Land Of 1000 Dances" (1966), "Funky Broadway" (1967), and "Don't Knock My Love - Part 1" (1971).

Prior to going solo in 1963, he had been a member of the Falcons who had a hit in 1962 with "I Found A Love" in which Pickett sang the lead. Wilson Pickett was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.
