Default Chris Evans Radio 2

I know its not UB40 related but l couldnt help myself

This morning in his show he played aldis new track the bob dylan cover" I want you"
As the song came to an end Evans chipped in and said " That was ali Campbell and I wouldnt be far from the truth in saying that Bob Dylan wishes he was dead so he could turn in his grave " , it tickled me I have too say...

to be fair Chris Evans has never much liked Ub40 anyway but it would still have tickled me

I'm not surprised, it's awful.If that is the 2nd best track on his new album then he is in real trouble.

Well im assuming that the last single silhouette was deemed to be the best track as those are the ones you tend to release, as i recall this album was first mentioned in 1867

People on here just sit and moan about Ali all day, it's quite sad really. Also his new album is great, as people fully well know. But they still pretend its 'the worst thing ever'. Getting Over The Storm is great, Silhouette is great, what the problem?

The title track is a decent effort,the Dylan cover is dire and when I heard that Reggae Music dirge I actually laughed.The lyrics sounded like something me and my 15 year old mates would have come up after being enthused by listening to Signing Off.

Not that it would matter to me if it was the greatest reggae album ever released,I still wouldn't buy it.If I wanted to finance cheats and liars I would donate to the Conservative party.Some people may feel comfortable following morally deficient fraudsters but it's not for me.

Never been a fan of Chris Evans but he's gone up a bit in my estimation with that comment.
