ARSHAD'S THOUGHTS ON:
UB40 JAMS BOARD
"The UB40 JAMS BOARD is an amazing forum created by our Sistah*E, giving UB40 fans world wide an opportunity to share views, learn more about their idols, and most importantly to start and build friendship round the globe. Maximum respect to my Brother Reza for introducing me to the UB40 JAMS BOARD."
"For 2 decades UB40 has managed to capture the heart of reggae music and the world. Each musical note seems to be like a drop from above, and lyrics that display great intellect, promoting liberation, emancipation and fraternity of man. UB40 is certainly one of the worlds finest bands, whose music would play on long after their demise."
BEING A UB40 FAN
"I've listened to UB40 ever since age 9, I was born in the year 1979 that's the same year the UBs released their first album Signing Off. My mother loves that album, she first introduced me to UB40 so in a way I'm extremely grateful to her for that. Being a UB40 fan has indeed given me a chance to meet very interesting people round the globe through the net. Big luv and Respect to the UB JAMS POSSE and everybody who's paid tribute to the band in a form of a home page or who has participated in any UB Chat medium. It's my dream to some day meet UB40 in person."
"REGGAE MUSIC IS THE KEY TO MY HEART" Reggae music is certainly one of the world's most pervasive forms of music. It manages to touch the hearts of a fairly wide cross-section of people throughout the world as it addresses many important issues of life eg social issues, political issues and philosophical. This makes UB40 the true veterans of reggae."
TOP 3 SONGS
"It's difficult to say really what my favourite UB40 songs are, each song has an unique, amazing quality in evoking a feeling of serenity, confidence and happiness. The 3 songs I listen to most are:
Red Red Wine
THE JAMS POSSE
"I first met Reza on the net while surfing on his page. He introduced me to the UB40 JAMS MESSAGE BOARD where I met everybody else. I think that the Jams Posse are a very wonderful and interesting group of people to whom I'd like to extend my gratitude and respect for being part of the UB40 Chat Forum. I really feel very honoured of being part of the Jams Posse."
THE #UBJAMS CHAT
"This is a great way for all us UB fans to communicate LIVE! Another great idea of our Sistah*E well done. Hope to meet you all there."
