The Wicked Pickett - The Life and Times of Wilson Pickett

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01d5nn0

Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who and a Wilson Pickett fan, tells the story of soul legend.

Contributors include Wilson's brother Max; his ex-partner Dovie Hall; and soul stars like Bobby Womack and Eddie Floyd, who experienced the exceptional singing talent first hand; as well as the wild side, which earned him the nickname "The Wicked Pickett".

Pickett died in 2006, aged 64, but he left a legacy of classic hits like Mustang Sally, The Land of 1,000 Dances, and In The Midnight Hour. He was determined to be a singing star from an early age and his brother Max remembers how Wilson would always be getting into fights, whilst also singing gospel in church.
