GOT to give it up for the MAN

R.I.P. Wilson Pickett

dead at 64
Please pay respect, friends. Listen to "Mustang Sally" and revel in it-- that unmistakable voice full of soul and think of all the musicians, singers and fans he touched. Or just watch The Best Movie Ever Made About White European Kids (Irish, actually) Falling Under the Spell of R & B and Sweet Soul Music:The Commitments. Or just read the NYT obit.

Do it for me. And do it for the man.

Jeez, we've got to talk soon. Lots to share. Keep an eye on the blog this weekend cuz I'll be updating, hopefully with beach-y photos. Or something.
