With Jackie Wilson and his girlfriend Lynn Crochet and Jeanette and Freddy Cannon in Las Vegas on August 20, 1974

Jeanette and Freddy were introduced at the midnight show. Jackie Wilson attended both performances that day - Jackie and Freddie were appearing in the Hilton lounge, as part of a Dick Clark Rock & Roll revue

Jackie married Harlean Harris in 1967, but split up soon after. Jackie later met and lived with Lynn Crochet, and they had two children. He was with Lynn up until his heart attack and on-stage accident in 1975. Wilson 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 while singing "Lonely Teardrops". The blow to the head Wilson suffered left him comatose. For the next eight years and four months, he was in a vegetative state until his death at age 49. Al Green, the soul singer, and Elvis Presley were some of of the few artists who regularly visited the bed-ridden Wilson. Wilson and Harris never officially divorced and Harris took the role of Wilson's caretaker for the singer's remaining nine years
