He only asked for a mention... and none of the above got a mention this year either and that's my point.

Sometimes you do try too hard you know.

Yes I do know.

I like the band as much as anyone on here but I am a realist.

They were never that big a band. They had a good run for their money - shame their "anthem" and biggest seller was a Neil Diamond cover - and they sell well at reasonable small to medium sized venues but they'll never be as big as those I mentioned nor have the same level of cudos at the Brits or other similar awards.

Surely if you were looking for alternative examples these were more appropriate? Or is always UB just because they're the band you follow regardless of the real world?
completely agree with your list
i am a fan of all the bands/artists mentioned above
never seen Elton John or the Kinks but do have thier albums at home

The Who and The Rolling Stones..probably 2 of the best i have ever seen live
i am not blinkered by just UB40
i do love other genres of music
you also forgot to mention Queen in your list......wish i had seen them aswell

Based on what?

Bob Marley may have had something to say about that (Rest in Peace).

Also reggae is a minority interest. Most of the world isn't listening to reggae.

So in all honesty I'd suggest that you're the one talking utter shite.
