Ali Campbell Quits UB40

I'm not sure how a band like UB40 can start having irreconcilable differences after almost 30 years of reggae bliss, but British band, UB40 is parting ways with its lead singer, Ali Campbell.

According to this story, Campbell says he's been upset with the band's management for awhile and couldn't put up with it anymore.

That's possible. Strange, but entirely plausible given the fact that what he's upset about is money.

UB40 on the other hand quickly released a statement saying that Campbell was leaving the band in order to pursue his solo career, which is something that's long been rumored. Campbell, in fact, does have a new album coming out this year.

In case you have no idea who in the hell UB40 is...you will after you play the video below.
