Gap Band Co-Founder Ronnie Wilson Dies At 73


Ronnie Wilson, co-founder of funk legends The Gap Band, has died at the age of 73. Wilson’s wife Linda confirmed on Facebook that her husband died Tuesday morning at their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ronnie formed the group with his brothers Charlie and Robert Wilson in 1967, first known as The Greenwood Archer Pine Street Band, before shortening it to Gap Band. They’re best known for hits like “You Dropped A Bomb On Me” and “Party Train”, and have been sampled by artists like Madonna, Usher, and Tina Turner. We are sending deepest condolences to Linda and the family. Rest In Peace Ronnie!
