Wilson Pickett goes to the Land of 1,000 Dances

Soul legend Wilson Pickett passed away today at the age of 64.

He did not wait until the midnight hour. I was not successful in my suit against Pickett for false advertising with the "Land of 1,000 dances" because by my count only six different dances are named.

Pickett is survived by a fiancee and four children.

Wilson Pickett was one of the ten finest American artists, ever. It's not really fair to the competition, given that he was a man and a half. (it was the half that knocked the women out; no brags, just facts)

Bob,don't blame "Wicked" Wilson Pickett for the numeric deficiencies in "Land of 1,000 dances', since the great Fats Domino wrote the song, and East LA's own Cannibal and the Headhunters got to tour with the Beatles off their '64 version of it.

You can blame Wilson Pickett for "Mustang Sally" which is played to death by heavy set 60 year old guys in hawaiian shirts at every vintage Mustang car show in America.

No wonder Timmermann v. Pickett was thrown out.
