Default new life

Was talking with Liz the other day when she stayed at mine for the Ahoy gig, that we had some great times over here on BB...we tried to find out when exactly it all went down hill..after the break up? No...was before that..
My personal opinion was when the chatroom was gone, and Facebook came along.
Still, we had some fantastic things happening in that chatroom, friendships were made there, we all rallyed together to win tickets for gigs on a competition. Or with the London Bombings, we all looked out for eachother till each and every Loonie was accounted for. We chatted till the wee hours of the mornings and had a laff with Martin who occasionally popped in to say hi.. Good old times
Whats your opinion...in this day and age, could the BB be brought back to life?
Just curious

of course it can be brought back to life . All we need is for more of us to leave Facebook alone for a while or become multi taskers where we hop from one to the other . After all new tour coming up and now the new album May next year which should mean another tour too AND apart from that it is their fortieth anniversary next year so plenty to talk about and look forward too .

No reason for it to not come back to life really......but it can only do that if people take the time to come over here once in a while and read/post/comment. I agree that this place started to go quiet when Facebook came along......think the chat room was a big attraction as well. It's nice though that so many of us have still remained friends even after emigrating to Facebook. Holds a lot of good memories for me though the BB

I agree with you all. And it would be lovely to see again. Especially as i was slow to get onto the internet and find you guys here. So i missed out on quite a bit. Hoping if UB40 celebrate another time, i get to join in.
If we put anything UB40 on face book, perhaps we should repeat on here too. Or come here first. Lets try, eh.
Big love xx
