BRINSLEY FORDE picks up MBE

The Duke of Cambridge presented former ASWAD frontman BRINSLEY FORDE with an MBE at Windsor Castle today.

Prince William also told the reggae musician he has a secret musical talent - playing the bass guitar.

FORDE said after the event: “I've just got a new bass player - you might know him as the Duke of Cambridge.”

“He said ‘I'm a bit good on the bass guitar’ so I'm thinking of signing him up, but he's got such a lot of other duties I don't know whether he'll have time to do it,” FORDE added.

BRINSLEY FORDE originally founded ASWAD in the mid 1970s and is now a solo artist, most recently releasing an album called Urban Jungle back in 2013.
