    Soul legend Wilson Pickett dies at 64

    NEW YORK (AFP) - Soul legend Wilson Pickett, best known for songs like "In The Midnight Hour" and "Mustang Sally" died of a heart attack. He was 64.


    "He was in hospital very near his home in Virginia," his manager Margo Lewis told AFP.

    "He'd been ill for a while and was forced in 2005 to take a hiatus from performing," Lewis said.

    Born in Alabama, Pickett moved to Detroit as a teenager and joined the Falcons, singing on their 1962 hit "I Found a Love."

    By 1965, he had signed a solo deal with Atlantic, scoring a chart hit with "In the Midnight Hour," which he co-wrote.

    He was inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame in 1991.
