R.I.P. Robert Wilson
Robert Wilsonknown as the Godfather of the Bass of The Gap Band passed away on Sunday August 15th. He founded the band with his brothers Charlie and Ronnie Wilson in the 70's. Their sound was like a cross between Parliament-Funkadelic and Earth, Wind & Fire. The Gap Band released a string of dance tunes that include "Early In The Morning", "Party Train", "Burn Rubber On Me", "Outstanding", and others. Robert is another legendary bassist taken away too soon and will be dearly missed. REST IN POWER!
