Breaking news: Terrence ‘Astro’ Wilson from reggae pop giants UB40 has quit after what he has described as a 'turbulent' few years.

In a statement he said: "Since Ali and Micky departed, the band has been like a rudderless ship with no clear direction, no action plan, we’ve merely
muddled our way through on a wing and a prayer."

No interest in the country & reggae album, venues being booked for tour, some with only 200 capacity,when they used to play for thousands, feels management have no interest.....

He said he wasn't happy about Getting Over The Storm Poes.That and some other stuff made him decide he'd had enough.
