I know everyone is hurting badly with Astro's sudden leaving, on top of an already crazy year, especially the band. I know I am very disappointed, sad and mad too as a fan, no doubt. I do understand the raw feelings of the last week or so. But maybe we can please put all the bad blood and comments to bed. Thankfully, the great news about Dublin's Sold Out show and counting has come. Not to mention how great that new tour will be. Let's revel more in that and that UB40 is still together, trodding on, moving forward to a better 2014.
Peace,
Bagga.....

I hear what you say bagga. And, of course, your right to say we are being a bit peurile and childish. But consider this. Schoolboy jokes could be seen as a healthy way of deflecting any anger away from the subject and rendering that anger harmless with the application of a little childish humour. I don't think the band are at the point of "forgive and forget".

What astro did was a terrible act of betrayal not only for the band but for all the people who bought tickets in good faith to see the band. To lie and deny the way he did was hurtful and insulting.

Anger is rarely a productive emotion so to turn that anger into humour seems to me to be about as positive as we can expect given the circumstances.

It's just a coping mechanism.

I think a little giggle at Astros expense is a small price to pay for his terrible act of betrayal.
