The Journey of A Living Legacy...

The Wilson Pickett, Jr. Legacy LLC, [WPLegacy] was established on June 17, 2010, under the direction of Maxwell Pickett (CEO/TTE), Wilson's youngest brother. As a boy, from the age of 13 until he entered the military at 20, Maxwell had the pleasure to work on the road under his brother's wing, during the height of Wilson's entertainment career. Many years later, Wilson would spend some precious reflective time with Maxwell before his death in January 2006. It was during this time that Maxwell would come to realize that the brother he admired, loved and often feared, had many deep regrets. Regrets that he had not strengthened and maintained his most important relationships, those with family and friends. Regrets that he had never given a helping hand to up and coming talents that had reached out at times... when just a little help could have made a big difference. He just couldn't seem to get out of his own way...


The words of two of his greatest hits, "It's Too Late" and "I'm Sorry About That", would become testaments of his personal life. In an effort to correct his course, Wilson established his Will & Trust for his children shortly before his death and appointed Maxwell as his Trustee.


Accepting this responsibility and realizing the heartfelt regrets his brother bore, Maxwell felt a desire to help promote his brother's legacy in a way that would be meaningful and pleasing to the Hall of Famer who had become internationally known as, "The Wicked Wilson Pickett".
