Just wondering, even with all the mess that's going on, with Ali slinging mud and all, would it still be possible for all original members of UB40 to one day come together again?

Who knows what the future holds? In the unlikely event of it happening of course I would go to see them.Don't think I could ever look at Ali and Astro in the same light again though.

I think some have read this the wrong way. I didn't say that it's what I wanted. I just asked if things changed, what would the odds of that ever happening? Don't act like it could never happen. There have been worse splits in bands and in marriages alike, where both sides swore they'd never get back together, but lo and behold they did in the end.

Don't exactly pay attention to details do you? I asked it as a "what if" question. Not a statement saying that it was actually going to happen.

Well then I suppose we can calculate the odds. Several conditions would need to be in place:

1. Astro + Ali admit all the things that they have done that were wrong (eg: lying to the press). Mickey has nothing to apologise for in my opinion.

2. Band accepts their apology and forgives them.

3. Band decides it's in their best interests to take the trio back.

4. Band takes the trio back.

Personally, I think that numbers 1 and 3 are the difficult ones. I can't ever imagine them coming clean and apologising. In addition, given the way that Ali sounds now, I don't think it's in the band's best interest to take him back. However, that's my opinion and others may like his voice as it sounds now.

However, I am perfectly happy with Duncan and Tony. The band looks happy on stage and they sound terrific, and that's the most important thing.
