LONDON (AP) Ali Campbell has quit UB40 after almost 30 years, citing management problems.

His bandmates, however, said the 48-year-old singer left to pursue solo projects.

In a statement on his Web site, Campbell said Friday that “management difficulties, which have been ongoing for almost five years, had become intolerable.”

“No words can express how upset I feel today that I have been forced to make this decision,” he wrote.

  1. hey that was sad after that long time being with the band now he was leaving for his own career??? well i cannot blame him if we may compare to nowadays group of singers even a member of spicegirl leave her group, even keat from boyzone decided to have solo career, and i will never forget beyonce leave the destiny child
    hmmmm but is the band still able to prform even though ali had leave

  2. It is very sad. Ali made the group with his distinctive lead vocals so I too wonder if the band will go one without him? I guess it’s up to them to get a new lead singer if they want to continue on, but the group probably just won’t be the same. I’ll miss them as they were.
