Another of my heroes dies

The veteran US soul singer Wilson Pickett has died, aged 64, after suffering a heart attack in Virginia.

His management company said that he had been in poor health for the past year.

Born in Alabama, Pickett shot to fame in the 1960s, with hits including In The Midnight Hour and Mustang Sally.

I remember listening to his LP and also Otis Redding when running my scrap electronics business with Harry Collins, here in Cambridge.
