Default Fast Facts - Quiz Time 5!!

Hello again!

It's week five of the slowest growing quiz show on the internet! This week's winner (as is the case every week) will receive a complimentary copy of the forthcoming documentary on UB40. There's been a slight delay - will most likely be completed in about 3-4 weeks.

Here's this week's question:
Why did Earl Falconer choose bass guitar as his intrument to play in UB40?

Good luck!
Tom

i know the 4 people he has been quoted to influence him...but your questions are never that easy are they???
well here goes
Roni Size, Andy C ,Adam F and Alex Reece...

...but whether they actually were his initial inspiration to be in the band...
As for who...maybe Ali or Brian when they were at school...
Oh

so many guesses!! All great - but not quite right.

Dad is not sleeping much now. Baby Brandon is getting up quite regularly. And when he's not up, it seems the rest are! Thanks for asking, though.

Keep guessing, too!
