Alan Henderson (born 26 November 1944, Belfast, Northern Ireland - died 9 April 2017, Big Lake, Minnesota, USA)

Alan Henderson and Billy Harrison, along with Ronnie Milling, formed a band called the Gamblers in 1962 in East Belfast. Over time, they added Eric Wrixton on piano and, finally, Van Morrison on sax, harmonica and vocals. Since Billy Fury, in England, was already backed by a group called the Gamblers, they were forced to change their name in order to have a chance of getting heard in the UK, and they became Them.  After recording Gloria and Here Comes The Night (plus a couple of albums), Them broke up in 1966 with Morrison going solo. Henderson put a new version of Them together and in the late 60’s recorded some more tunes. After that he started a construction company.
