Robin Campbell & Matt Doyle of UB40

Welcome Robin & Matt:

We’re joined on the Starline by two stars of the band that have rocked and reggaed since 1978 in Birmingham. Their upcoming album UB45 releases in 2023 to celebrate 45 years. We welcome Robin Campbell & Matt Doyle of UB40.

Friends, let’s go Beyond the Mic. Robin, you’ve said in the past the only reason you wanted to be in a band was to be with your brother. UB40 has been a family for nearly 45 years. After Brian & Terence passed, how hard was it to create music?

Matt, when UB40 asked you to take over for Duncan, what went through your mind?

Why do you think UB40 has endured through the years? What’s the one factor that has kept the band going?

Matt “Champion” is the anthem for the Commonwealth Games. Why is this such an honor for UB40 & you?

The Rockin’ 8:

It’s time for the Rockin’ 8, 8 random questions; answer with the first thing that comes to your mind. Since we have two guests, we will alternate questions but as always there is no Pressure.
