Ub40 - Ub40 Stars Face Bankruptcy

Five original members of British reggae band UB40 are facing bankruptcy, according to a U.K. report.
Liquidators are chasing Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, Terence Wilson, Norman Hassan and James Brown as part of an investigation into their finances.
Proceedings are due to begin at Birmingham County Court in England on Monday (14Feb11), reports Britain's News of the World.
The group, which took its name from the Unemployment Benefit form 40 in the 1980s, has been under scrutiny from tax officials over its record label, Dep International, which was established in 1980.
