Pickett's Recharge

A new Bloodshot Records anthology resurrects one of South Florida's most revered rockers

Pickett says he's waiting to see how well the album sells before deciding whether he'll resume touring. Regardless, a few big appearances are planned for the remainder of the year, and there are plans to record. But at age 55, Pickett knows his audiences will be a lot younger than he. "I've worried a bit about that," he admits. "At the shows I played recently [such as his captivating sets during the Sheila Witkin Memorial concerts], there were mostly young people — a lot of people my age, but a lot of them just flat-out young, like 15 years old... I tell myself that Willie Nelson does this and nobody says anything about him. I'm just going to do it and hope I never embarrass myself."

Regardless of what happens from here, Pickett claims he has no regrets. "We went farther than 99 percent of most bands. We got everything but the money. I met beautiful girls, been all over the country, and felt so satisfied playing with everybody that was in the band. It was a thrill. I look back and go, wow, what a great ride."
