- This is UB40 FAN CLUB, for people who are mad about UB40.
One of the world's most culturally diverse dub reggae bands with musicians of English, Scottish, Irish, Yemeni and Jamaican parentage. They had spent many years performing live and developing a name for themselves when they were asked to join 'The Pretenders' as their support act on a national tour.UB40 were influenced by the many Blues Parties they attended as teenagers, their love of ska and reggae inspired such original tracks as "King","Food for Thought","Signing Off" and "One in Ten".Their early music style was unique, with a heavy influence of analogue synthesizers, psychedelic rock guitar, saxophone and dub producer techniques which were later perfected by the late Pablo Falconer.UB40 are arguably the number one reggae act of all time in terms of record sales over 55 million.For over twenty five years, UB40 have continued the job of popularising reggae around the globe.

UB40 PRESS STATEMENT 25th January 2008
UB40 have today confirmed that they have parted company with lead singer Ali Campbell after a thirty year career together, following Campbell’s wish to focus more time on his solo career. Ali’s final dates with the band will be in Australia, New Zealand and Uganda in February 2008
Lead singer Ali Campbell had embarked upon a solo album project (Running Free) last year and throughout the course of this album, his time and commitment to the band began to conflict with his recording work, promotional commitments and his own corporate shows. Ali Campbell has taken the decision to focus on his solo career and in doing so, could not give his full commitment to UB40. The other band members of UB40 are naturally disappointed and saddened after being together as a band unit and as good friends for almost thirty years. A decision on replacing Campbell has not yet been made by the other seven band members. The bands next studio album - 24/7- which was recorded with Ali Campbell will go ahead as planned for release in May on the bands own REFLEX MUSIC record label.
A spokesman added: "The band are of course saddened by Ali’s departure, they have been together for a long time and their relationship as band members and friends is almost like a marriage, having lived in and out of each others pockets for pretty much most of their lives. They have been through some amazing times, but the band members realise that Ali needs to go and do his solo projects and perhaps it’s a good thing that they can take some time away from each other to reflect. They haven’t ruled out working together in the future but for now the other seven members will continue as UB40. However all of the band members wish Ali every success in his future solo career."
