Jackie Wilson  Thats Why Jackie Wilson first started his career in music in his native Detroit. He joined Billy Ward & the Dominoes in 1953, replacing Clyde McPhatter. After losing McPhatter, the group's only major recording success with Wilson came in June of 1956 with the single "St. Therese of The Roses" that reached number 13 on the Pop charts. His solo career began with 1957's "Reet Petite," written by the then-unknown Berry Gordy, Jr. He had his first top 40 hit in 1958 with "To Be Loved." At the end of that year he had his first big success with "Lonely Teardrops" that went to #7 on the charts. The song, also written by Gordy, became his signature tune. That same year saw Wilson release his first LP titled She's So Fine. Wilson's brand of soul and R&B helped him cross over to the mainstream, having several pop hits. His dynamic stage performances earned him the nickname "Mr. Excitement." In another of his performances on Ed Sullivan's show, he sang "Lonely Teardrops" which was considered one of the show's classics. In the 1960s, Wilson continued to record singles, many of them operatic, such as "Danny Boy" or "Night," others were up-tempo and exciting, such as "Baby Workout" in 1963. His career began to suffer in the mid-60s, though he managed a brief revival by collaborating with Carl Davis, a legendary Chicago producer. This resulted in two hits, "Whispers (Gettin' Louder)" and "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher". The revival was short-lived, though, and Wilson rarely charted in the 1970s. He suffered a massive heart attack while playing a Dick Clark show at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill, New Jersey on September 29, 1975, falling head-first to the stage; he was singing "Lonely Teardrops". The blow to his head left him comatose. For the next eight years and four months he was in a vegetative state until his death at age 49.

Gene Pitney 24 Hours From Tulsa Gene Pitney passed away last April, 2006, of natural causes, he was 65, but he left a legacy of hits going back to the early 60's and had been touring for the last 40 years. His songs have been recorded by some of the world's biggest stars, Hello Mary Lou was released by Rick Nelson, Roy Orbison recorded Today's Teardrops as the B-side to his million-selling single, Blue Angel. He is also credited with helping the Rolling Stones break into the American market with his endorsement of the band. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote his hit That Girl Belongs to Yesterday which became the Stones duo's first composition to reach the American charts. Gene once recalled how his first solo performance at school degenerated into an embarrassing whimper as he was petrified by the expectant audience. Overcoming his nerves over the next few years, Pitney learned to play the guitar and piano and formed a schoolboy band. It was during one of their gigs that his distinctive voice was discovered by the proverbial "fat man with a cigar" who took him off to New York, and the rest was history.

Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head BJ Thomas B.J. Thomas sings his most famous song, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1970. The hit song was used as backgroud music for the totally pointless bicycle scene in the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

For What Its Worth - Buffalo Springfield Watch for an obvious clue that this was a lip syncing effort when Neil Young drops a drumstick on the drummers floor tom, and it bounces off with no audible sound. Great clip though.
