Default Ole 4 New ?...

In a nutshell ... What's keeping the loyal fans loyal to the original 5 remaining members of ub40 ?

For me it's ... Where I grew up - a belonging of something to be attached to , not wanting to let it go - too many happy memories! Via the music , their bond and friendship ... I found all this as a growing kid fascinating ... I don't think I've still grown up though

I know divorce happens , BUT there will always be that bond ...

And if Im completely honest , I never thought comming up to my fifties fairly soon that from a school boy aged twelve I'd still be watching and hearing UB40 "LIVE" ...

It's a massive achievement for the guys . Maximum respect to them ..

Big love

Bobster

I fact more than that .... I still love me ole ting ...

Cheers n beers

Long live UB40 ...

There is only 1 ub40, why should I go to any old members? I never had anything with the old members. Except from the loonies I met on here, it was Brian who made me feel welcome here. I still remember what he said in his first post to me ( I have a memory like an elephant, can't help it) Norman is my favorite ub40 member and he is in the band. and except for that of course it is the music. The music ali and co make nowadays doesn't even come close to the ub40 sound.

It was a promise made. I heard something in a lyric that spoke to me, that actually related to how I was feeling at the time, that promise has grown and evolved. I have seen the lads many times, and not once have they failed me. I think for me, UB40 have been there like an old friend, whatever life has thrown my way. I carry on going to their concerts, large and small, as often as I can simply because a. I love the music, b. It always feels like 'home'.
I don't want to name the other fella, because it gets me in trouble , but I think Duncan gives a whole different dimension to the band and live his voice is just as pure and clean as from the studio.
As long as the boys carry on gigging and making music, I will be there
