* RIP Robert Wilson - GAP Band Bassist *

Robert Wilson provided the backbone for all The GAP Band's songs, including BURN RUBBER (Why You Wanna Hurt Me), one of my favorites from 1980.
It went to #1 in 1981 and (with apologies to "Leader of the Pack") reeving engines haven't sounded quite the same since!
