The current crap that's going on will come out in the wash.....let the UB40 and Ali legal teams handle it. As for the rest....sure, we all liked Ali at one point or another...so yeah, I'm all for talking about the olden times when he was in the band.....it would be kinda odd to pretend those first 28 years never happened, wouldn't it?

I've gone for the 2nd. We can't forget Ali completely - he was a major part of the band we love for over 2 decades. But I am getting sick of all the crap. How can we criticise them for constantly talking about UB40 when we're doing it with Ali. I know it's not as much but it only seems to take the slightest comment for people to drag it out pages and pages and it's really boring to tell you the truth. I used to be one of the worst but after a year or so it started to feel like old news. At some point we're really going to have to put it to rest.

I agree with GefferyMorgan, we can' forget Ali, regardless of the situation, he was a member and his talent as well as the other band member's, made UB40.
