Brian Travers – Brummie of the Year?

With voting now open for Brummie of the Year we’re taking a look at all the candidates. Not blowing his own trumpet, it’s UB40’s saxophonist Brian Travers:


UB40 / Brian Travers, originally uploaded by Sebastian Gerhard.

Brian (or B-TUB as he might be known to Twitterers) is a founder member of UB40 and is still honking, squeaking and winking at the girls in the front row (that’s what all sax players do isn’t it?) some thirty years later. Not only that he’s still speaking up for Brum, and he’s been very vocal in the fight to save The Rainbow.
