Default another whopper.

Whenever I see our ex singer lying in the press I always like to put the record straight here for anyone who is interested.

In a recent interview he was asked 'what is the biggest current drain on your finances?'

Aldi replied 'Legal costs. I'm involved in court cases with my brothers Duncan and Robin, and it's bleeding me dry'.

This is a COMPLETE LIE.!!

He is being taken to court by his old band for miss use of the name of the band he left 7 years ago. He is NOT BEING TAKEN TO COURT BY HIS BROTHERS.

DUNCAN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THE LITIGATION AGAINST OUR EX SINGER. He has never been involved in any litigation against his brother, and has no intention of EVER being involved in any court case involving either UB40 or his younger brother.

He is a liar. He is just plugging his tabloid narrative of sibling rivalry, painting himself as a victim.

Our ex singer left the band 7 years ago because he thought he could make more money as a solo artist.

It hasn't worked out for him and he is now so desperate he has been passing himself off as UB40, and lying in the press to try and get some sympathy.

all he keeps doing is dragging Dunc in when all Dunc did was plug the hole he left and because Dunc has had rave reviews as the band have had ,it is eating away at him.

Whatever he was trying to achieve with that interview, it backfired. From the comments:

"Wow, he can lay legitimate claim to another #1 now;
Maybe he should call his next album "Lazy, hypocritical, tax avoiding half-wit"?"

and...

"I got a 1m tax-free advance from Virgin, but rather than promote the album I just took the money and ran"
You sound like a really nice and honourable person. I'm at a loss to understand why all the people around you are so horrible to you...

This statements speaks volumes , what a wanker !

"After the Promises and Lies album I held out for a solo deal, so for that album, Big Love in 1994, I’d been out of the country for two years to be tax exempt, and I got a 1m tax-free advance from Virgin, but rather than promote the album I just took the money and ran. So they then cross-collateralised it, trying to make that money back from other UB40 albums, which caused a bit of friction."

I'm not bothered if the interview contained lies or not, I found it a very interesting read. I supposed Ali could've plugged his new album during the interview but stuck to the financial angle. Getting over the storm is a great album and the ub40 tour was a success, rise above whatever is written in the press, don't let it get under your skin. The bickering will never end unless you ignore what Ali is saying, concentrate on ub40..we want more music.

theres a thing, when JB or BT say anything regarding the ex singer then the odd couple of ex singers groupies jump in and try to defend his actions but when Robin says the same thing then nothing is said because they know that Robin would not hide anything away and is not only hurt by the ex singers actions as a bandmember but a Brother but he is saying exactly what BT and JB have been saying for nearly 7 years . Truth
