Review:

"Brims with the reminiscences of Wilson's former wives and lovers, fellow musicians, bodyguards, and others. This is the portrait of a bigger-than-life personality." -"Benjamin Segedin, Booklist "A tremendous read. Four stars (highest rating)." -Q Magazine "Jackie was one of the most extraordinary performers with whom I've ever worked... Thanks so much, Tony, for helping to tell the world of his contributions." -Dick Clark

Synopsis:

Jackie Wilson, whose honey-rich falsetto-tenor voice had thrilled millions throughout the world, died in January, 1984; aged 49. For the preceding eight years and four months he had been in a vegetable-like state. He never uttered a word since suffering a heart attack while performing at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill, New Jersey in September, 1975. Yet another indignity awaited Jackie. After a well-publicized funeral attended by around 1,500 relatives, friends and fans he was buried in an unmarked grave in his home city of Detroit. Effectively his burial was that of a pauper. Tony Douglas draws on reminiscences of Wilson's former wives and lovers, fellow musicians, bodyguards, and others to produce a gripping acount and a superbly crafted portrayal of this remarkable talent.
