“We’ve heard tonight, the sad news that former member of UB40, Terence Wilson, better known as Astro, has died after a brief illness. Our condolences to his family” wrote the band UB40 on Twitter.
UB40 was formed in 1978 with James Brown, Brian Travers, and Earl Falconer, who were joined shortly after by the rest of the members: Alistair Campbell, Robin Campbell, Norman Hassan, Michael Virtue, and Astro. They were all friends who knew each other from their native Birmingham.
The name chosen for the group referred to the form that the unemployed had to fill out in order to be able to collect subsidies in the UK, in a nod to their origins and UB40’s social commitment.
During its more than 40 years in business, the group has great hits such as ” Red Red Wine ” and ” Falling In Love With You ” and has gone on to sell more than one hundred million albums worldwide.
Astro performed with the reggae band for more than 30 years, until he left in 2013 and formed his own group with another former UB40 member, Ali Campbell, with a tour planned next year.
