A tragic loss for the world of music on this day (25th Sept).

Sadly Jackie Wilson suffered a heart while performing on stage in 1975.

The iconic singer collapsed into a coma and suffered severe brain damage.

He would stay in that state for nine years until he passed away in 1984.

Van Morrison wrote 'Jackie Wilson Said' in his memory.
