UB40 Lead Singer Ali Campbell Diagnosed with Epstein-Barr

UB40

With Ali Campbell at the helm and hits like Red Red Wine and Can’t Help Falling In Love driving them, it’s no wonder UB40 became one of the best-selling recording artists of all time. But unfortunate news today that the former leader of such a popular band has been diagnosed with a potentially debilitating virus.

Epstein-Barr is an energy-sapping disease that caused Campbell to collapse while recording a new solo album. Taken to the hospital and diagnosed, Campbell has been ordered to take at least 8 weeks off his busy schedule of recording and touring.

There is good news to round out this story. According to doctors, Campbell should be able to make a full, if slow, recovery.
