From Our Forum: Jackie Wilson

By September 11, 2003

Follow me on:

"Jackie was certainly a great singer, but apparently, in real life he was nothing to write home about. He was a former gang leader, had several 'wives' at the same time, and Patti LaBelle's book tells how he more or less raped her backstage. Apparently, most of his managers were mob-related, as well, and the atmosphere in his dressing room was like something out of 'Guys and Dolls.'" -- RGEBERER
