UB40 always made much of having been unemployed ( the band name deriving from the unemployment benefits card you had to take to get your money - perhaps I should have kept mine as a collectible)ordinary kids and scraping the money together. Whilst I don't think the Campbell brother's father was rich he was a professional musician and concert promoter so they didn't quite start from squat. Anyway, Peavey. Yes, the Undercover Boss thing is shocking if a few years old now. Peavey UK went out of business and their stock sold off cheap so the market here was flooded to some extent and used values are very low. Laney also gradually shifted most production to China. I guess it's staying alive, even if a UK made Laney was cheap in the UK it wouldn't be in Germany or Canada or wherever.
