Friday, 25 January 2008
Well, we thought our week had hit the ultimate low with the sad demise of Heath Ledger. But, no, today some news has emerged that sees us sitting in front of our screens barely able to conceal our sobbing from concerned colleagues.
Yes, Friday 25th January 2008 will go down in history as the day Ali Campbell announced he was quitting UB40.
We're trying to be strong, but really, this has rocked British music to the core hasn't it? What's that, no it hasn't? Ah, sorry, our mistake. And that of most of the papers and news sites today, who seem to be reporting the break-up of a band who were past their mediocre best 20 or so years ago as if it's some sort of major event.
