March 18, 1941 Happy Birthday Wilson Pickett!
I’m glad I knew this song already, cause I woke up this morning with a call for a gig that wants the latest top 40 songs. I spent the last 13 hours learning the latest dance hits. I drank so much coffee and had all these techno drums going on. I’m tweaked and now we’re watching a scary TV show. I think I’m going to be up all night buzzing!
Always love me some Wilson Pickett! Happy Birthday!
November 26, 1966 Wilson Pickett’s Mustang Sally enters the pop charts!
Mustang Sally is another great crowd pleaser! My good friend Pepper (Genie Swinson) sang back up for Wilson Pickett for years. Pepper is an amazing singer. It’s funny how many great singers there are in NYC who sing backup for other artists but should be stars themselves.
Well, I just got home from hosting the Ann Ruckert Songwriters Circle at the Red Lion. We had some good songwriters show up and now I have to set up the studio here for Casey to record. He’s going to record a new Christmas song tonight and new original song he’s written!
Here’s Mustang Sally. More tomorrow.
