View Full Version : Fast Facts - Quiz Time 5!!

28th August 2005, 07:42 AM
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!

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... :D
how i missed this ....showing how much i actually don't know...your have to wait until the rest of the UK wakes up before the answers improve....hows Daddy...sleepless nites still or is babe going through yet? :D

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!

did he choose it cause all the good instruments were already taken ? :D

28th August 2005, 09:43 AM
Didnt Ali buy the bass amoungst afew other things with the compensation he got for being glassed in the eye and gave the bass to Earl maybe?? lol

28th August 2005, 02:32 PM
either no one else wanted to do it or it's cos he loved robbie shakespeare!!!! :D :D

28th August 2005, 02:34 PM
Coz Ali and Jimi were already scrapping over who was gonna play drums :D

28th August 2005, 03:09 PM
Because he didn't want to be the singer. :D

28th August 2005, 03:15 PM
erm.... because he is so tall he thought he ought to do something that involved him standing at the back?

Your a really cute pussy for a wild cat :D

Okay.. we actually have a few that are partially correct. Samantha and Sarah K. are partially correct - but I'll give it to you both. When asked if he knew he wanted to play bass at the beginning, Earl responded, "No. I was basically told to play bass by Ali." So, his real inspiration to play came from Ali :D :D

As the who purchased his first bass guitar, it was his Mrs.

Congratulations Samantha and Sarah - you win! PM me with shipping information and I'll get it off to you in about 4 weeks from now.

The documentary is coming along well - making some adjustments, but we are really happy with how it looks to date.

Thanks for playing!!

Hi Jolene-

Yes, it should air in Northern California - in fact all over the U.S. I will find out which network soon and will let you know. Could be VH1, MTV or maybe NBC. I'll get back to you when I know for sure.
