Jackie Wilson

Jackie Wilson

Here is the way I started out with this story. This will be enjoyable. I've never heard a bad Jackie Wilson recording.

Then what happens? I start my research and learn Jackie's tragic story. I don't know why I had never heard about his untimely death. Maybe I had but just forgotten about it. So Jackie Wilson is another with a bummer of a life story. He did great from 57 to 75. Then in 75 he had a heart attack at age 36. He was in a coma until 1984 and died at 49.
