Music Groups - Police

The Police were an English three-piece rock band consisting of Sting (lead vocals, bass guitar), Andy Summers (guitar, vocals) and Stewart Copeland (drums, vocals, percussion). The band became globally popular in the late 1970s, playing a style of rock that was influenced by jazz, punk and reggae music. Their 1983 album, Synchronicity, was number one in the UK and the US and sold over 8,000,000 copies in the US. The band broke up in 1984, but reunited in early 2007 for a one-off world tour lasting until August 2008, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of their hit single "Roxanne" and also, to a lesser extent, that of their formation as a group. The Police have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, and were the world's highest-earning musicians during 2008, thanks to their reunion tour. [1] Rolling Stone ranked The Police number 70 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[

1 DSSCTM '86 was an unnecessary remake that was nothing more than a lethargic, synth-heavy cover version that could've been featured on any Sting album (or trendy car commercial). Was Stewart Copeland even involved (unless he programmed the drum machines)? -- Submitted By: (montauk6) on November 11, 2013, 10:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 "The funny thing is I loved The Police, but I could never stand Sting on his own. I find his solo stuff boring as hell, so his leaving was the boning point because Sting on his own does not = Sting with The Police...." My thoughts exactly. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 26, 2012, 3:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I've heard that Sting is one of the biggest jerks in music. He notoriously didn't get along with either member of the Police and I've heard he's an egotistical tool bag to most people in general. He was also the one who demanded the tickets to the Police reunion be raised to a price that a lot of people couldn't afford. I also agree that besides some really early work, his solo stuff was bland and boring. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 25, 2012, 11:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The funny thing is I loved The Police, but I could never stand Sting on his own. I find his solo stuff boring as hell, so his leaving was the boning point because Sting on his own does not = Sting with The Police. The reunion tour was a bone too. I enjoyed seeing The Police again, but not the lame parents who had to bring their kids (how many like The Police?) to it, making it one of those "family friendly or else" deals. At one point toward the end of the concert a whiff of pot smoke came up from the level beneath us at Giants Stadium, and the security came running down between sections trying to sniff out the "perpetrator" with these gestapo-like ultra-concerned looks on their faces as if to say "MY GOD! SOMEONES SMOKING WEED AT A CONCERT!" That was when concerts started to become a thing of the past for me. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 3:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I would say Synchronicity was their boning point. Not that it was a bad album, it wasn't at all, but you could tell by this point that Sting had taken over pretty much all creative control of the band. It doesn't surprise me that this album was almost credited to Sting and the Police and that the band broke up shortly afterwards. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 27, 2011, 12:28 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
