Wished James had kicked his ass!
How the heck did UB40 ever sell 70 Million records??
Aren't UB40 to reggae what Pat Boone was to black rock music (Little Richard, et. al) in the 50's?
I'm even later to "the party" than you, but I wholeheartedly agree, I wish James had twatted that horrible, sweaty, excuse for an individual that is Arse hole Campbell, he always looked like he had a big mouth. That part of the book made me angry, I wonder what would have happened if Spider was present, rather than being, ironically, with the rest of UB40 at the time. Still, hats off to you James Fearnley, a great read, really enjoyed it. Just away to start Calum Bruce's book now, about being a fan, I noticed that James has written a piece in there too.
Yeah, I totally agree, that part made me angry too. If only Spidey would have been there or Shane wouldn't have been such a mess, that cunt Campbell would have ate shit till the cows come home...great book though.
