He spoke recently in the press about how the band is 'damaging the UB40 legacy'. The only one doing any damage is him.

Here's a quote from a local Nigerian magazine writing about the valentine gig.

. . ."as Paul Play took over, the crowd exploded. He gave an impressive performance and the crowd sang along with him.

The international act brandy took the tempo a notch higher. She played for 45 minutes and the crowd didn't want her to drop the mic.

However, when it was UB40s TURN THE TEMPO WENT FLAT, THE PERFORMANCE WASNT BREATHTAKING AND TO MAKE IT WORSE, GUESTS STARTED LEAVING THE VENUE."

Way to go astro aldi and mickey.

Your doing a fantastic job of protecting the bands legacy. :bounceblue:

What's interesting is I remember, the day he left the band, Astro said that he wanted to play to more people/bigger crowds.

So now he's teamed up with Ali to perform in hotel lobbies... Strong logic bro.

Oh dear...#mugs , they'd be better to just fcuck off and make a go of cooking sauces n daytime tv shows... Leave the music to the real musicians.

You're right b0i! Ali said in an interview not so long ago that one of things he still wants to do with his career is to do a reggae revue in Las Vegas. Maybe he should do that and Astro should go off and cook his sauces so maybe they could salvage at least maybe 1% of any dignity that they MIGHT have left!

its going to be a difficult couple of years one thinks,i will never understand old aldi,he left ub40 to focus on his own career,which is fair comment but then that fcuks up he is now trying to redeem his status as ub40's front man,why when he left to go solo,as for the other two,i do believe that they have been sucked in to a deep hole that they will never get out of,its such a sorry state,but the way I see it is that old fat boy aldi has fcuked up his own career and is now trying his best too mess up another 7+ careers,just because he has failed,what a complete tw*t,as for using the name,i do believe it's all in hand.

Perhaps they should sing a reggae version of 'we can see you sneaking out'
