For those of you old enough to know who Wilson Pickett was, he passed away today at 64.

I worked opposite him and his band back in the 70's at the International Hotel (now the Las Vegas, Hilton). He was a great R&B artist who's songs are still played today.

He was also crazy. He fired a hand gun one night when they closed the curtain on him for going over 20 minutes.
