Even he must realise that playing with ub40 and then doing his karaoke show would be a massive step backwards, no band could recreate the ub sound, not even sly and robbie, hence the nameless band. Robin and dunc must be so proud of their little brother. NOT

Hmmmm.....

I'm gonna start a band here in Spain.

It'll be called the Ali Campbell Gastric Band.

With Gary Jarvis in very small letters.

I've been playing guitar for 30 years, and I'm still rubbish. Can't sing either.

I'm pretty sure it'll piss him off.........

Gastric band hahahaha, I suppose he will try to blame that for his poor tour attendance, or lack of a tour

Hello again everyone.

Thank you for your replies, especially JB - its good when artists take time to communicate with their fans.

From your responses, two things are clear. First - there is obviously still some depth of feeling about what happened and secondly, I do not have all the facts. Whether these allegations are true or not, who am I to judge - I'll leave that to those who are qualified.

When there is no wood, the fire goes out.

Looking forward to the new album and the next gig.
Best wishes,
Signing in - signing out.

so we chased him out of town [banned him from the site]. One of only a handful of times we ever resorted to banning anyone.

the BNP member in question then went over to the emptyside to complain. Sadtorytw@t and his housewives were on the side of the BNP member against this site.

Our very own politburo member, Saad, went over there to complain and sadtory turned it against him with a typical racist rant, defending the BNP member saying that it was people like saad [with a chip on his shoulder] that are the real racists. In other words, the BNP member was a good lad, it was them paki's that were the problem.

that's when I realized that there was a racist streak over on that site.

occasionally one of the lonely 5 comes here to complain about non-white people. the last one i remember was a thread called 'some black guy'.

what he said....SHAMEFUL BUNCH OF DUMB ASS BIGOTS...4k em

Theres not many gigs you go too when theres more band members than audience. Ali Campbell the Gerald Ratner of music business decisions.
