UB40 Loses Its Singer

UB40 singer Ali Campbell has decided to quit the group after a round of final concerts in Australia, New Zealand and Uganda next month.
"I have been deeply unhappy with administrative practices and with many decisions that have been made in recent years," Campbell said in a statement. "Suffice to say I felt I had no other option but to resign from my band. This decision has not been taken lightly and has come as a result of a long, painful and agonizing thought process."
Represensatives for the rest of UB40—Campbell's bandmates for close to 30 years—issued a separate statement on the matter, saying, "They have been together for a long time and their relationship as band members and friends is almost like a marriage."
