RIP ASTRO of UB40
All of us at Surfdog are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of the great and powerful Astro. UB40 was the very first band our founder Dave Kaplan ever managed. The first record that he worked with the band was “Rat In The Kitchen” including the title song which featured Astro’s iconic vocals.
“UB40 gave me my very first chance at management when I was 26 years old, and I’m forever grateful. What an insane (good insane) experience. Astro, in particular, left a very indelible imprint as a very kind man who taught me the importance of uncompromising authenticity in music.” – Dave Kaplan (Surfdog/DKM Founder)
REST IN POWER, ASTRO!
