i know some of my comments may seem different, but what i listen to music wise and what i want to see LIVE on stage and what has gone on in life in the past..UB40 has a big part of that (probably the same for a lot here)
i think i could stage my life in regards to the albums of UB40 and YES i do get pissed of if the advertisement aint right
as an example

UB40 - was the first album my future wife bought me
LOL - the person who introduced me to this album is now dead
UB40 at the Troxy 2010 is the day i had my 17yr old dog put to sleep
there is plenty more
so Yes
i do get the hump with advertising

Exactly Nani - the pop world is littered with lead singers who thought they were sole talent in their bands and then found no-one was really interested in what they did solo.

UB40 is a band of many different talents who collectively produce something special we all love.

It was a fact Aldi forgot & he has been proved to be very ordinary when surrounded by good but uninspiring musicians as he has with him now.........

Yes, Satan started the lead. Even Mick Jagger didn't fare too well!

Uninspiring, very ordinary...You hit that on the head, Saad.

I did try to listen but there's no passion and they're not stamping their own band's identity to any of the songs. To be a bone fide solo act, you've got to let go of the coat tails.

that's why our ex-singer comparing himself to mick jagger in the press was very unfortunate.

when mick released his solo album, despite plenty of marketing, and even a TV documentary, his record bombed.

still nani, you've been spared from his latest tour of Oz. It's just been cancelled.

I think we surely have had enough Ali bashing, well I have leave all that sh*t to the dark side now. This post started life pointing out that the adverts are using pictures of Ali and Mickey, lets face it that is nothing to do with Ali or his team.
Plus surely it is a bit demeaning to Duncan and Tony

yes mags, you're right.

I think everyone will agree that we have had it under control for a long time now. There haven't been any problems like this for a couple of years. It's no benefit to us to confuse the fans.

It seems that it happens when we get a new territory on board.

whoever the programer is that is given the job of constructing the site will do what he always does, google the name and use the library images. Just as hickpaul pointed out. It's just that in this particular case, it's not quite that straight forward. But they aren't to know that.

Indeed. But going 'over there' and typing negative comments doesn't get you or Bernie or Stan anywhere either.
