The Selecter

This statement released from Pauline Black & The Selecter:

“On behalf of all in The Selecter, both past and present, & Arthur “Gaps” Hendrickson’s family, I would like to thank everybody who has personally sent or posted messages of condolence on FB. The outpouring of love and respect for Gaps has been heartfelt and totally overwhelming to read. Everybody adored Gaps & so many of you said what a gentleman he was when you met him at the hundreds of shows we have done over the years.

It is The Selecter’s 45th anniversary year, and every year that I have shared the stage with Gaps feels very precious at the moment. He was a wonderful singing partner, friend and consummately elegant performer. Initially from the humblest of beginnings in St.Kitts, but throughout his life, never forgetting from whence he came as he graced stages all over the world"
