Default THE PRESS ANNOUNCEMENTS

People,

Think about it.....the press confirmed Duncan as the new band member who takes over the lead singing duties......a fact we all already knew....

No reason to be confused about Maxi......he has his own band...own career and...will feature on a couple of recordings on the new album.He also recently toured with UB40.Thats my understanding of it anyway.

News doesnt say he is the NEW lead singer....but rather makes reference to him making an appearance on tour.....which stands to reason especially if he is going to be singing with UB40 on the new album.

The news columns are there for sensationalism....and the headlines get people to read their stories.

Maxi is great.....but personally, i would rather have Duncan ....it makes for easier continuity than a new already established star.

My personal opinions expressed ofcourse

There's an article in the times online and it quotes

Duncan Campbell will share vocal duties with fellow Birmingham reggae performer Maxi Priest at live concerts.

here's the link

Check out Maxi's site, nothing on there, and its kept pretty much up to date, so my guess is Maxi is just the 'guest', but a good one at that

maxi is a quality singer in he's own right, i think us fans at the concerts are the winners because you get a couple of quality acts on the stage at the same time, can't wait till brentwood.

Sorry to contradict Reza but I thought that it had always been the case that Robin was taking over leads and Duncan was going to do the harmonies? so where is the fact that we always knew?
