UB40 singer Duncan Campbell has announced his retirement from music after suffering a seizure at his home last week.
Duncan, 63, who has spent the past year recovering from a stroke he suffered last August, had been preparing for the reggae legend’s UK tour later this year.
Duncan said, “Unfortunately, due to continued ill health, I have reluctantly decided to retire from the band so as to focus on my recovery. I am very grateful, and would like to express my sincere thanks, to the fans for all their support during this time and indeed throughout my time with UB40. The band have my full support going forward and, of course, my very best wishes for the future with their new singer.”
