Soul music pioneer Wilson Pickett dies
"Muscle Shoals musician David Hood played on several of Pickett's recordings, including 1971's 'Don't Knock My Love.'

'He was a very dynamic performer,' Hood said. 'He was like a steel spring, like it was going to pop all the time.

'He was very energetic and outgoing. It was always something special to play with him.'

Hood said Pickett was a leader in the Muscle Shoals music scene.

'He was part of the early history and the later history of Muscle Shoals music,'' Hood said. 'He cut here before Aretha (Franklin) came here. In fact, it was his recordings that Jerry Wexler heard that made him bring Aretha here to record."
