Part of the problem is feel good news stories and headlines don't make "money" - people are more likely to read/download/buy bad news than good news. And it doesn't sell that the band is having an awesome sold out tour and that they are going even stronger after over 35 years together. What catches people's eyes is bad news - gossipy, controversial, shocking, etc. Advertisers pay big when things sell.

Ali is taking full advantage of this as his music career comes to an end. He reminds me of an animal splashing in the water right before they drown - making alot of noise in a last ditch effort not to drown.

Sadly, as much as I would take great pleasure in posting on every story on their site discrediting the author and the subject, it would only bring the hits on their site up...which would make them report on it even more.

Aldi Campbell, is a damn blasted LIAR!
I've had 3 different colleagues tell me about 3 different shows, only 1 was correct with Uttoxeter. One had no idea of the split and thanked me for updating him.
