Veteran music writer Tony Fletcher (bestselling author of biographies on Keith Moon, the Smiths, and R.E.M.), now takes on one the most famous, influential, and fascinating figures in soul and R&B with In the Midnight Hour, the first major biography of Wilson Pickett. Informed by extensive interviews with Pickett's family, friends, and collaborators, and illustrated with never-before-seen personal photographs, the book includes fascinating insights into the careers of Pickett's contemporaries, including James Brown, Ike and Tina Turner, Otis Redding, and Bobby Womack. Fletcher discusses the book and Pickett’s career with fellow music writer Jonathan Gould, followed by a wine reception to celebrate the book’s launch.
