I know I should catch up with comments and visit around and about before posting, but I’m in total groupie mode. I logged on to Twitter to do a little catch up there, and spotted a favourite muso site of mine @alhanda was tweeting a bit about UB40. They are, always have been, and always will be my absolute top favourite group ever. I can listen to all their albums back to back every day on a loop and be a very happy bunny. So I zoomed over to their site and saw that they’re going on a world tour. And now I WANT TO SEE THEM RIGHT NOW! Ahem. Anyway. They really did rock Cape Town some years back. There were people on the rooftops, and the air was pretty thick with smoke and heavenly sounds.
It never occurred to me to follow them on Twitter before, because – well – I have no idea, but I followed them today, and they followed me back!
I nearly clocked right out when I saw that. I finally figured out that they follow all their followers back, and I have two thoughts on that. I don’t care if they have hundreds of assistants sending out their tweets. How many megastars have the style to follow us plebs back? Just goes to show – UB40 rock on every level.
If you’re a fan, and how could you not be, check them out on @UB40_org to see when and where they’ll be playing. And follow them too. I’m totally going to tell everyone I know that UB40 follows me on Twitter, and leave the bit about them following all their followers out. Talk about an epic, beautiful name drop. Love those guys. Now before I go back to being the very serious writer that I am – stop laughing in the back there – have some of the good stuff. This is a great example of how following back those who follow you isn’t a bad thing – it really just makes me love them more.
