Wilson Pickett: A great loss. I grew up listening to "Land of 1000 Dances" and "Mustang Sally," and my understanding of rock and roll (and music generally) would be the poorer without him.

Last night I was reading this book, and the author spoke about reviewing videotapes of old soul revues with the legendary Sam Moore, who began to cry while watching his peers, so many now dead, strut their stuff, so young and alive and full of power.
