One of the premier Funk groups of the early '80's. GAP stands for three streets in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Greenwood, Archer, and Pine.

thanks for that strange trivia! I had always assumed, as the spelling suggests, that the name actually referred to a "gap" rather than being, in effect, the "G.A.P. Band".

R.I.P. Robert Wilson. Rest in paradise. Funk Forever.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
