Default Band member conspiracy going back to the beginning

Had to post this as it's so funny and random. For the benefit of anyone not on facebook that hasn't seen stings picture comments.

So theres this bloke on facebook called Todd Bellaris. He posted an old picture of Jimmy on his page (the black and white one where it looks like he's part of Duran Duran) and stated that the picture was of "Roger Campbell". He has some UB and Ali fans as friends who of course replied to this picture saying that it was our Jim and not a "Roger Campbell". So this Todd comes back with...

"It's not it's roger I know becouse I was best mates with alis brother I used to stay round alis they made a little bed up for me on floor I sleeped in rogers room whilst Ali and chrissi had there room"

After more protests from others he follows it up with....

"I am the one who helped his brother out when he had the stroke I had to resuss roger twice and got him breathing again then ran to Ali for help I also called the ambulance out I was staying round Ali then me Ali chrissi catches up in there green mondeo roger diead a few mounths later clinging hold of my rist and said keep playing drums Todd he dies I then ran to alis arms crying over alis shoulders I also went to rogers Campbell's funnaral he got cremated and me Ali rob ducan scatter rogers ashes in the sea off cornwall that's haw I know the reason Ali does not meathion it becouse it's upsetting pay some respect to the lads Ali knows full well I tryed so hard to save roger if it wasn't for me quick thinking getting Ali for help nor me staying round at that time Ali would of found his brother roger could of went there and then I even said this to Ali roger was a lucky lad although we lost the fight in the end roger was a great drummer of ub40 and always will be he was very well missed a very specil freand to me he used to treat me like I was his own I also used to make my self at home with ub40 I know this so well you lot weren't there at the time that's why your thinking I getting it wong well I can shore you that I am not"

So after all this time it transpires that our Jimmy wasn't originally in the band, and replaced Ali, Robin and "Ducan's" brother Roger (David doesn't exist apparently) who was the drummer and died a few years into the band forming. And his best friend Todd (who it states on his profile was born in 1980 so must have been 4 at the time), tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate him. So there you go. You learn something new every day.


Roger Campbell NOT Jimmy

Everyday I'm reminded that this world is full of sick, twisted, delusional people. Congrats to Todd.... you are one of them.
