The Police

Gordon Sumner (aka Sting)
Stewart Copeland
Andy Summers

Three names, one group. The Police. They weren't around for long as a group. In terms of singles they were active late 70's and early 80's with such gigantic monster hits such as Can't Stand Losing You, So Lonely, Roxanne, Message In A Bottle, Walking On The Moon, Don't Stand So Close To Me etc etc ETC! THEY WERE IMMENSE. Sting is not everyone's cup of tea, I personally think the guy's a complete nob, but to have so much money that your accountant can steal the odd million and you not even notice?! R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Enough said, these were my childhood, or a very large and important part of it!

I never even bought a single until they re-released Don't Stand So Close To Me in 1986 with that awful reworking of their towering number 1 from 1980 (why?!).  I was at sixth form and I got it ripped out of me something chronic for buying it, and on 12".  I sort of meekly defended it at the time, but people who knew better than me had got it spot on.  And yes I know now that it was all part of a Greatest Hits campaign, but still, why mess with such a great song.  You can't improve on perfection...
