Oh wow.....what the hell is going on there???

Evening boys and girls......and yes.....the old fossil is still here, alive and breathing .. Don't really like getting involved in these discussions any more but that clip was shocking. I just felt like Astro couldn't find his bearings at all with the dep band. That was really bad......never, ever heard him struggle like that. Very sad viewing x

To put it simple using an example: RRW, a great tune, easy to recognise, not really the one I'd like to hear on a gig in the first place but still..not hearing it would be a bit weird - I can't explain it better, it's a psychological thing. Don't get me wrong anyway


yeah, your right P.

I did say we dared to TALK about it. I don't see it happening any time soon. But it's an ambition for the future. I'm not knocking it, I'm eternally grateful for the success it has given the band.

It's only the participation element that makes it a good live number. We've introduced plenty of tracks to the live set that didn't stay on the list for very long. Some songs work great live, even if they're unknown. Other songs can be hit records but don't translate live so well. If RRW hadn't been such a big hit for us I think the song would have been dropped years ago.

Idiot? Because I don't go round kissing band members asses, who are obsessed with Ali!

What it amounts to is sad old men who are trying but failing to recreate what they had with Ali.

Then we have the two faced so called fans who toe the party line on here then go and watch him. You then have G Morgan who helps set up a page on face book, that brings both sets of fans together, then he starts saying he likes Ali music. He then gets exposed by the other moderators for being two faced then gets kicked out.

The reality is you can't cope without Ali being in your lives.

I didn't help setup any page. I am friends with the people who setup a page and they made me a moderator without me asking for it. I literally woke up one morning and saw on my Facebook updates that I'd been made a moderator over a page that I never knew had even been created. I went along with it, because after what I was told, I thought it was a good idea that maybe both sides should have their ability to speak their minds. I believe that freedom of speech is a good thing, if handled the right way. I was never "exposed" by anyone. I left the UB40ChatZone facebook page of my own free will because some of the trouble on there got out of hand and my hands were tied. The other two moderators wouldn't allow me to delete Ali's crazy fans. So rather than try to tell someone else how to run their own page, I got out of it. I never professed to be an Ali fan either. So before you start spreading rumors, you might want to check the facts, mate.

You're a liar and the truth ain't in you. Just ask the two people who setup that UB40 ChatZone. I talked to them just yesterday, explaining my stance. They'll tell ya the truth. I got out of that crap while I still had my sanity left. So you best leave my name out of your shit stirring, a'right? You have a lot of guts, you pathetic little keyboard warrior. You wouldn't dare say this stuff to my face. Typical coward.

I bet you are the sorry little coward that comes on here, starts arguments with Jimmy, just to get him riled up, and then screen captures his responses and post them over at the UB40ChatZone just to get the Ali fans to start trouble. How brave of ya! lol

I joined UB Chatzone and lasted about 48 hours because of an influx of people like you.The only thing you can accuse JB of really is stating the obvious As for your last sentence.It's his use of the UB40 name and the substandard performances he puts on in that name that annoys UB40 fans.Until late last year there had been barely a mention of him for months.Why don't you stick to his facebook page,no doubt they'd be very grateful for the traffic.And why are picking on Matt? That page was started with the best of intentions but was soon hijacked by people who hate UB40!!!
