UB40 Interview

From one drummer to another…

In this interview, our very own Rowan Jackson interviews his drumming idol, UB40'S Jimmy Brown. Together they discuss the reggae genre, where the band has been, and the future that lies ahead...

 

Hi Jimmy, let me just introduce myself…

My name’s Rowan Jackson. I’ve been a professional drummer for years. Thank you for taking this opportunity to talk to me.

I use to play with Nine Below Zero, Bonnie Tyler, and other 80’s players back in the day, but I haven’t done it for years now.


You must have been a real player then, to play with those kinds of people?

I wasn’t too bad but I didn’t make my millions from it so I turned to teaching to give something back. I don’t play much now but I still love a bit of drums, love a bit of reggae as well, so it’s a dream come true talking to you!
